Bear at Wild Place Project


Your outdoor summer adventure is waiting at Wild Place Project! 

Enjoy time with loved ones and make special memories together in the big outdoors. Spot exotic species from around the world, from giraffes, zebras and cheetahs to lemurs and meerkats, plus some beautiful zoo babies! 

We can’t wait to welcome you!

Acres and acres of family fun

Take a breath of fresh air, stretch your legs and immerse yourself in nature. There are 50 beautiful acres to explore including woodlands, wildflowers, gardens and Tower Meadow – ideal for summer picnics. 

Award-winning Bear Wood

Bears and wolves are sharing the same stretch of woodland at Wild Place Project! It’s a UK first for zoos and it’s the first time bears and wolves have lived together in British woodland for thousands of years. 

Make sure you discover Bear Wood on your visit, and embark on a journey into a lost world.

Wind through 7.5 acres of beautiful habitat on raised walkways, watching bears, wolves, lynxes and wolverines roaming below. With panoramic viewpoints, this is an immersive and award-winning experience unlike any other!

Bénoué National Park at Wild Place Project

Journey to the wilds of Cameroon, Africa, in our stunning Bénoué National Park exhibit. While our enormous giraffe house is currently closed as part of our safety precautions for visitors, you can still take in the sweeping view of giraffes, zebras, red river hogs and elands roaming across the open grasslands.

Discover Madagascar

Soak up the sights and sounds of the Madagascan village, a conservation exhibit home to lemurs and pygmy goats! Marvel at five different types of mischievous lemur scamper around. Spot one of our latest zoo babies... a gentle lemur pup.

The lemur walkthrough is currently closed to aid social distancing, but check the website for updates. 

Cheetahs and Geladas

Catch a glimpse of our cheetahs, the world’s fastest land mammal that can achieve speeds of 0-60mph in just three seconds. Our males rule over their spacious land! Near these sleek, elegant big cats, there’s Gelada Rocks, home to our troop of colourful gelada ‘baboons’.

Did you know…? 

We’re run and managed by Bristol Zoological Society, a leading conservation and education charity. We’re not just a fun and award-winning day out! 

We’re so grateful to everyone who has supported our BZS Appeal during the closure. We still need your support – so start planning your trip to Wild Place Project and help in our mission of saving wildlife together! 
Follow us on social media and sign up to our e-newsletter for animal stories and latest news on how your visits are supporting our conservation work in the UK and overseas.


Together we can ensure everyone has a safe and enjoyable visit to Wild Place Project. Visitors can now explore the park and enjoy the animals safely with our new one-way system and social distancing measures.

To ensure the safety of our visitors and staff, it is essential that you read and fully understand our site rules before visiting.
