Welcome to Exmoor Zoo

Welcome to Exmoor Zoo a special place that enables you to get up close and personal!  Opened in 1982  the zoo is now an ideal family venue, especially for the kids. The zoo is always changing so no repeat visit is ever the same.

The final version entrance

Recent exhibits such as caracal, puma, maned wolves, tapir, sand cats and the famous "Exmoor Beast" can be seen amongst the unique and rare smaller animals for which the zoo provides "natural" enclosures. Carefully planted shrubs and trees as they have matured along the winding zoo paths keep you wondering what is next, providing a very relaxing and natural atmosphere!

Exmoor Zoo is different, neither a wildlife park or a city zoo, but a more friendly and contact orientated zoo which has grown into the North Devon countryside. You get to meet the animals, join in the handling sessions, touch a snake, hold a spider, feed a wallaby and learn about the animals during talks and feed times.

We are extremely proud to announce that we have just been awarded both the best small attraction in Devon and the whole of the Southwest - a great achievement. The zoo is not so large so as to prevent you seeing everything in a visit and has some very rare and unusual animals on display - many of which you will not see in other UK zoos!

Why not come and pay us a visit - you would be most welcome!
