The Yorkshire Wildlife Park
Yorkshire Wildlife Park is an innovative walk-through safari park in Doncaster, South Yorkshire. The newly designed enclosures allow more interaction with the animals to take place; you can get closer to them then you could ever dream of. Witness the majestic African lions basking in the sun, observe zebra, ostriches and Ankole cattle (famous for their incredibly broad horns) roam the African-style plains. There are Siberian tigers (also known as Amur tigers) too, which you can check out from a 150-metre walkway, giving you a spectacular view! The meerkat enclosure is of special interest as well, because its fencing partially consists of see-through panels, which provide pleasant viewing opportunities for children. Children also love walking in the wallaby walkabout, where they can actually sit down and pet a wallaby! The cleverly simulated natural environment of Lemur Woods allows the lemurs to show their climbing skills. They are incredibly dexterous, but they're also very social and inquisitive. They may walk right up to you and say hello! Kids can do some monkeying around of their own in the Jungle Play Barn, which features slides, climbing racks, swings, ropes and other obstacles.
