Coronavirus - Customer Notice
Wild Discovery is now temporarily closed. 

This is the hardest decision we have ever had to make.  However, under the current circumstances it is our social responsibility to follow government advice and to stand by this decision to help protect our team and customers and to help stop the spread of this virus.

Whilst the zoo may be closed to the public, we still require our dedicated team to attend work and to continue to care for the animals.
This temporary closure not only impacts on the animals here at the zoo but it will also have a detrimental effect on our conservation projects and breeding programs around the world. We are therefore setting up a go funding project and if any local eateries and shop are able to donate fresh produce please get in touch.

If you have an animal encounter or keeper for the day experience booked with us, you will be contacted in the coming days.  Any Wild Discovery gift vouchers that are due to expire soon will be extended until 31st December 2020.  All annual pass holders will receive an extension to their pass, with more details follow in time.

If you have any questions please email as the gift shop is now closed.

We hope you all take care and help support one another in stopping the spread of the virus.
Wild Discovery the zoo that interacts with you!

Our aim is to bring you unique experiences through our daily interactive and educational talks and animal encounters.  We hope to inspire people of all ages to help conserve our fascinating animal kingdom and protect the environment that we all live in. 

At Wild Discovery, your admission is a day pass, so you have unlimited entry for that day so you can explore all the areas within the zoo, discovering and learning about animals from around the world.  We are open to Ribby Hall Holiday Guests, the local community, schools and groups.

We have a great selection of animals, along with some of the most unusual animals from across the globe.

You can meet them and see their unique ways of eating, living and find out how they would defend themselves from predators through our daily animal talks.
Have you ever wanted to meet your favourite animal and have a personal encounter with it or maybe always wanted to be a zoo keeper?

You can do both with our unique animal encounters and zoo keeper for the day experience.
