Highland Wildlife Park

Wildlife, Safari Parks, Zoos & Farms

Kincraig, Kingussie, Inverness-shire, PH21 1NL

    Experience Scottish wildlife and see endangered animals of the world's mountain and tundra regions in the spectacular setting of the Highland Wildlife Park.

    Based at Kincraig, 7 miles south of Aviemore, the Highland Wildlife Park is a great day out for all ages.  Discover the amazing variety of wildlife found in present day Scotland, such as the pine marten, wildcat and red deer - then step back in time and meet the creatures of Scotland's past - wolves, lynx, beavers and wild horses.

    Owned by the Royal Zoological Society of Scotland, the park has expanded its species collection to fulfil its mission in conservation and now provides a home to rare animals of the world's mountains and tundra regions. Meet our amazing Amur tigers, snow monkeys, red pandas, Bactrian camels and Walker, our polar bear.

    Drive around the Main Reserve in your own vehicle and then explore the rest of the Park on foot. We have daily feeding talks where you can join one of the animal keepers and find out more about our animals. We also run Landrover Tours of the Main Reserve which can be booked on arrival in our shop.
