Axe Valley Wildlife Park is a fabulous family friendly attraction situated in the beautiful Axe Valley, just outside Lyme Regis.
The park is well set out and is home to a number of species from rare breeds of goats to zebras, meerkats, otters and mongooses. It offers visitors the opportunity to get up close with animals of all sizes with some great animal encounter sessions including handling a snake, tarantula or cockroach, hand-feeding birds, meeting the armadillo, lemur or flamingos.
There are daily animal talks which provide lots of insightful information about all the park inhabitants.
There are children’s play areas, lovely shady spots for a picnic, a cafe, shop and other facilities.
The attraction is particularly appealing for children under 12s, but great for people of all ages. It’s best to allow 2 to 3 hours to explore the park.
