Wild Place Project is a fun, family attraction that provides adventure, play and learning with an emphasis on protecting habitats on our doorsteps and around the globe.
The purpose built giraffe house, home to 2 giraffes, is part of a 1.8 acre enclosure in the Bénoué National Park. Don’t miss the zebra, eland and guinea fowl roaming in the grassland.
Visitors to Wild Place Project can Discover Madagascar, which is home to several mischievous lemurs, see okapi and cheeky red river hogs in the Secret Congo and pay a visit to the striking grey wolves of Europe.
Wild Place Project is home to the world’s fastest land mammal. The cheetahs, all young males, are living in the immersive Mahali Pori National Park exhibit. Their home boasts exciting features such as a lure carrying food, which the cheetahs will chase, showing their full running speed of 0 to 60mph in only three seconds.
We also have a lemur walk-through, with an extra species of black and white ruffed lemurs, the ‘Congo Bongo’ play area and a puzzling maize maze.
Families can also take their shoes and socks off and enjoy an array of textures on the Barefoot Trail, climb up the scramble net and slide down the fireman’s pole in the Fun Fort, relax in the Tower Meadow or take a stroll in the protected ancient woodland.
For the ultimate adrenaline adventure don’t forget the Leap of Faith. Test the nerves of all the family by taking on seven different climbing and exhilarating challenges on offer from the ‘3G Power Swing’, climbing wall and if you’re brave enough the Leap of Faith jump!
