Highland Wildlife Park is set in 260 acres of Scottish Highlands and is run by the Royal Zoological Society of Scotland. Opened in 1972, the wildlife park operates all year long.

Highland Park contains a safari park where customers can drive through the main reserve in their own vehicles. You can see species such as the Red Deer, European Elk, Himalayan Tahr, European Bison and more!

Visitors can discover more animals in the walk-round enclosures. Can you find the Arctic Fox, Red Panda, European Beaver, and Amur tiger? What about the ever popular polar bear, Walker?

Join one of the guided tours of the park’s drive-through reserve. In addition to seeing the animals roam freely about the highlands, you will learn about Scottish wildlife, history and fun facts about the park.

Highland Wildlife Park offers you the chance to get up close and personal with the animals with their “Be a Keeper for a Day” events. Help the keepers to feed the animals and clean their enclosures as you shadow them for a day. You get a rare chance to get close to the animals and learn more about their habitat and behaviour from the keepers.
