A Great Family Zoo on the Edge of Dartmoor!

There are over 200 animals at Dartmoor Zoological Park: from tiny stick insects to Ben our Brown Bear or Solomon our Lion, all set in over 30 acres of beautiful parkland. Discover something different, learn something amazing and help us make tomorrow’s world rich in animal life.

We are open daily from 10am all year round. It is a wonderful place to bring children. Come and see the animals and enjoy new our new restaurant with-far reaching views, and delicious healthy food.

Watch the Meerkats
We’ve recently install these great new web cameras so you can now drop in and see the meerkats 24hrs a day.

This is the main enclosure. We’ll be moving the camera around from time to time so you get to see the whole show.



Keeper for a Day
LynxOur Keeper and Education departments are currently putting together a fantastic package designed for everyone who ever wondered what it was like to work in a zoo and look after all these fantastic animals.

The Keeper for a Day programme will give you a fantastic opportunity to get hands-on with some of the most popular animals here at DZP. You’ll get to see what it’s like to be a keeper with a unique behind the scenes experience you’ll never forget.

We’re already taking bookings and places are strictly limited. So if you’re interested in getting involved, or you know someone who’d just adore this fantastic experience as a gift, then contact us now.
