April 2021 COVID-19 Update

Mon 5th April

We are so excited to reopen our gates from April 12th to our amazing visitors once again. Your love and support for the park have been like nothing we could have imagined, and we cannot thank you enough for your generosity. All the teams and animals here at Paradise Wildlife Park have very much missed you over the last lockdown and can’t wait to greet you again.


Before we entered another national lockdown, our incredible Land of the Tigers habitat was only open for three weeks. It is now ready to be explored! Our Amur tiger sisters Aleena and Siberia have been patiently waiting for your return to visit their luxurious new home. It still remains the first Amur tiger habitat of its kind. Not only can you view tigers fully submerged underwater in their fantastic pool, but there are also beautiful fish swimming in the pool. This makes the Land of the Tigers the first big cat mixed-species habitat in the UK.


We are also still hard at work constructing Jaguar Jungle and Sun Bear Heights, so please bear with us while we work on these exciting new projects so that we can provide the best experience for our animals and guests going forward.


Our outdoor play areas and indoor habitats (Temple of Angkor, Amazon & Beyond & Rainforest building) will also be opening up with the rest of the park. However, our indoor play area, Tumble Jungle, and the Blue Lagoon will stay closed for now, but we hope to reopen these areas later in the year.


So to make your zoo experience as safe as possible we have put in place some COVID-19 safety measures such as our one-way system around the animal park and World of Dinosaurs, as well as additional sanitising stations. There is a pay by card system in place and we will not be accepting cash. Takeaway food will be available for you to enjoy in our outdoor seating areas. Masks must also be worn in any indoor areas and we will ask for visitors to adhere to social distancing measures. Sadly, our indoor habitats will also be closed. The government has sanctioned that from April 12th indoor areas in zoos cannot be open. We hope that this will change with the next lessening of restrictions. We do appreciate your understanding and patience with this.


There is a maximum number of visitors on-site per day so we can avoid mass crowds. The booking system on our website is there so we can ensure a staggered entrance of visitors to the park evenly over the course of the day. You may stay with us until 6pm from your booking slot. We really appreciate your understanding and co-operation.
