Dartmoor Zoo

West Devon

Welcome to Dartmoor Zoo, winner of the Eden Channel's Top Wildlife Attraction of the Year 2011, and subject of the the Hollywood movie We Bought A Zoo directed by Cameron Crowe (Jerry Maguire, Almost Famous), starring Matt Damon and Scarlett Johansson.

Set in 33 acres of beautiful woodland with some stunning views of the surrounding countryside, Dartmoor Zoological Park is a unique family owned zoo with a fantastic collection of animals.

Formerly known as Dartmoor Wildlife Park, the zoo was purchased by the Mee family and, following major refurbishment work, reopened in July 2007. The story of those early days can be found here.

The animals here include tigers, lions, jaguar, lynx and cheetah (the largest collection of big cats in the region), bears, wolves, tapir, capybara, racoons, meerkats, monkeys, a fantastic collection of bugs and reptiles and much more.

Times and prices are subject to change. Contact venue before setting out.
