Dartmoor Zoo

Hidden on the borders of Dartmoor National Park, Dartmoor Zoo boasts a wonderful 33 acres of woodland, celebrating a wide range of exotic and native animals, including the biggest variety of big cats in the South West of England. From tigers, lions and cheetah, to monkeys, meerkats and tapir, you’re bound to find some of your favourites. With our unique enclosure designs, you’ll also feel closer to these amazing animals than ever before.

Home of the Hollywood film 'We bought a Zoo', Dartmoor Zoo is a charity dedicated to wildlife conservation, education and research. We work hard to ensure that the development of the Zoo does not have an adverse effect on the beautiful woodland environment.

There are regular daily events such as public talks at feeding times, animal encounters and special activities for the family during the holidays such as trails and face-painting.
