SOUTH LAKES SAFARI ZOO

SOUTH LAKES SAFARI ZOO

What used to be South Lakes Wildlife Park opened to the public on a fairly wind-swept location in 1994 and has more than 1,000 animals in its care, including large cats and mammals, primates, reptiles and birds. Some animals roam wild - so you can walk among kangaroos and emus. There are aerial walkways over some enclosures, giving astonishing views. The zoo boasts a proud track record in conservation. Unfortunately, it has a chequered safety history, including several animal escapes, a fire in which 30 lemurs died and the death of a keeper, mauled by a Sumatran tiger, in 2013.

NOTICE - As of 6 March 2017, the future of this attraction looks uncertain. Check the zoo's website for up to date information.
