With a collection of several hundred animals, a day out at the Lake District Wildlife Park provides an opportunity to see both domestic and more exotic animals, many in natural open enclosures.
 
Amongst others there are lively lemur troops, giant bison from the American plains, gibbons, zebra, deer and rare breed domestic animals, all in spacious paddocks, and a wide variety of birds of prey and reptiles.
