A visit to Marwell Wildlife is a chance to get close to the wonders of the natural world – and play a big part in helping to save them. From sleek snow leopards to majestic giraffes, leaf-cutter ants to red-bellied piranha, curious meerkats to enormous rhinos our 140-acre park is home to over 180 exotic and charismatic species, in beautiful, landscaped surroundings. Just by visiting Marwell Wildlife, you’ll be making a big contribution to our projects to conserve species and habitats, both here in Hampshire and around the world.
Marwell Wildlife is about being as active or as relaxed as you want. There are three play areas where children can run wild while you take a well-earned break. Enjoy spectacular views of our African Valley, while you eat and drink at Café Graze, or its attached picnic area. There’s also a miniature railway and a free road train to help you get around. Best of all, you can combine an unforgettable day out with a chance to learn all about the natural world and the challenges it faces.
See giraffe, zebra, waterbuck and ostrich roaming wild in our African Valley. Discover the secrets of the rainforest in Tropical World. Marvel at wallabies and kookaburra on the Australian Bush Walk. Dive beneath the surface with the underwater views in Penguin World. Experience the wonders of South East Asia with our Siamang gibbons.
An exciting programme of events, talks and school holiday entertainments takes place throughout the year. Annual membership, face-to-face experiences and animal adoptions are all available too - see our website for more details.
