It was a nice walk through the bush and seeing the animals. The lions were pretty lazy but apparantly perk up at 2.30 when its feeding time. Pretty overpriced for what it is $30 per adult. We felt it would have been worth $20 at...More

Not the greatest of the springs around Rotorua but it does have Lions and watching the feeding in the afternoon is always great.

I wouldn't exactly call this place a "wildlife" park. I was hoping to see a lot more of NZ wildlife... Instead, there were lions, which if you arrived at the right time you could watch them being fed. Don't stand to close though or you...More

My partner and I visited the wildlife park yesterday. We used an entertainment voucher which is lucky as the prices are't cheap for what you get. First part of the park was beautiful and they have maintained the grounds well and the animals look well...More

I wish this place had stopped at the fish, bird and farmyard animals because that part of the park was pretty decent and the animals seemed well catered for. However the lion part was just plain awful. The small enclosure that houses 7-8 big cats...More

Easy day walk through areas containing various animals. It's a good way to see some of the local critters that may not be evident from your car. Especially for children this is a great way to experience the animals of New Zealand. There are bathrooms...More

We arrived at around 4.30pm and the park was EMPTY. Which was great. No screaming kids to pound on the eardrums. Paid $35 each for entry and $2 per small bag for animal feed (had to buy 5 to make it worthwhile). Walking around the...More

I'm not sure about now, but one of the times when we were there, they did and they were just gorgeous...if you especially want to see lion cubs then it may pay to ring and find out....
