VIP Behind-The-Scenes Tour

Make family memories to last a lifetime with our exclusive behind the scenes tour to discover the inner workings of Yorkshire Wildlife Park and its family of animals.  

Your Animal Ranger will guide you on a 2-hour tour where you’ll learn all about how we care for the animals, prepare their food and complete important health checks. 

Meet the Meerkats and lark around with the Lemurs, discovering fascinating facts about some of the Park’s cheekiest inhabitants. Continue your captivating journey around the park as you meet more of the incredible animals that call Yorkshire Wildlife Park home. 

You will also have the opportunity to meet and feed one of our big cats! 

Following the tour, you are free to explore the park at your own pace for the rest of this unforgettably wild day.
