General Comments
Cotswold Wildlife Park Zoo is a very good day out. There is a good selection of animals, all in easy to view enclosures and cages etc. Around the park there are extra little touches that make it more fun, like the bat house, the beautiful walled garden holding an enclosure for penguins and a tropical house with a sloth or two crawling slowly about on the roof! Of the bigger animals there are Zebras, Rhinos, Lions, Leopards (no elephants, tigers, giraffes or gorillas), and as for smaller animals...there are loads...tapirs, wolves (these are new to the park, and you view them via a high walkway) meerkats and lemurs etc. Oh, and there is a small farm animal bit (you can go in with the goats etc.). One group of animals not to be missed are the siamang gibbons..they are great! Go in and view the bats, also snakes and reptiles. You won't be disappointed. A small Train runs through the park, but you have to pay extra for this (£1 adult, 50p child). It's worth it if you've got kids. Entry price was £9 adult, £6.50 child, no family tickets available, which is not too good. The restaurant/cafe was large and served lots, and prices are what you'd expect. Plenty of toilets dotted about. Dogs were allowed around most of the park. Easy going for pushchairs/prams etc., although some places were not accessible. Don't forget to scare the missus by showing her the BIG FAT HAIRY bird eating spider....just remember to hide the horror on your own face...eeek!

Go! It's a nice looking wildlife park, and there's enough to satisfy most. Zebras and Rhinos roaming together in the picturesque central enclosure alone makes you reach for the camera....could be on safari.
