What else is on at Peak Wildlife Park?

Visit Peak Wildlife Park, a great family day out in Staffordshire

Have you ever wanted to hop around with wallabies, or maybe to feed a penguin a fish? Perhaps to jump around with some lemurs or catch a glimpse of the elusive red squirrel? Well at Peak Wildlife Park, all of these animal experiences are possible in an interactive wildlife park where the animals are nearly as free to roam as you are! 

Now you can even meet three magnificent polar bears, with Hope and her two cubs recently arriving at the park in 2023. Come and see them today in their 5-acre habitat and become awe-struck at these mighty and beautiful creatures in a natural environment. 

What to expect up close to nature at Peak Wildlife Park

  • There are five main animal walks that you can go through with Peak Wildlife Park, one of these is the lemur walk. Look out for King Julien as you walk alongside these mischievous Madagascians!
  • Look out for the red-ruffed, black and white-ruffed as well as ring-tailed lemurs as you walk beside these curious creatures.
  • If you’re looking for some flightless fun, then you wouldn’t be out of place on one of Peak’s penguin walks. Waddle on with some Humboldt penguins in their colonies as they eagerly await for some fishy snacks before heading off for a swim in the pool.
  • You can also watch them splash about from an underwater viewing area, which always makes for some great sights when you visit this penguin paradise.
  • The lovable marsupials that are wallabies ended up in the UK wilds under bizarre circumstances in 1940, through being released from a private collection as a wartime measure!
  • Here, you can give a fuss, feed some treats and bounce about with Bennetts wallabies, which is certain to have you leaving with a spring in your step!
  • Another adorable animal you can walk about with in Peak Wildlife Park are the red squirrels
  • Become a part of the project by going on a squirrel walk, as all money goes to the conservation and repopulation of red squirrels. Plus, they’re adorable, so you wouldn’t want to miss these little guys anyway! 

Plenty of fun things to do at Peak Wildlife Park

You may be tired after all these animal walks, so why not wind down at a forgotten Namibian outpost and hang out with some meerkats? Watch them scurry about the sands while you brush the majestic hair of a pygmy goat, who will be happy to lie on their side while you give them a nice fuss!

It’s also worth keeping an eye out for some of the other animals on site, including zebras, otters, tortoises, giant rabbits, sheep, deer, warty pig, dik-diks and the Patagonian Mara, of which you can still get close to.

So take a walk on the wild side today and pay a visit to an incredible bunch of animals all waiting to play with you (and maybe try and nab your snacks too)!
