Marwell Zoological Park

The 140 acre Marwell Zoological Park is home to over 250 exotic and endangered species, from pink tailed sharks to red-eyed tree frogs, laughing kookabura to frilled lizards, giraffe nosed catfish to bat eared foxes!
See giraffe, waterbuck and ostrich roaming wild in the African Valley and discover the secrets of the rainforest in Tropical World. Dive beneath the surface in Penguin World, and see firm favourites including tigers, leopards and rhinoceros.
By visiting Marwell you’ll be helping to conserve these animals in the wild – a major part of the park’s work. 
Enjoy a freshly prepared meal at the impressive cafe with its large veranda, or try a snack from one of the kiosks.
