A postcard from… Cotswold Wildlife Park (September 2014)

Images taken at Cotswold Wildlife Park. September 2014.

Cotswold Wildlife Park is set in 160 acres and has beautiful gardens as well as a wide range of animals from lions and wolves to snakes and crocodiles. 

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and were impressed with the grounds in general, the animal enclosures and the staff. The enclosures appear to have been well thought out in terms of both space for the animals and the access to the visitors. For example, the rhino and camels both have large fields to roam around in, with a dip around the edge and a low fence to give visitors the best possible view. This meant the children could see easily without having to keep picking them up – and it’s also great if you enjoy taking photos!

There is lots of green open space and there are flowers and plants everywhere. The lake is beautiful and we enjoyed seeing flamingo from inside a hide. Our little boy loves snakes and lizards so he was very excited to see that Cotswold Wildlife Park has one of the largest reptile collections in the UK!
