Isle of Wight Zoo

The Isle of Wight Zoo specialises in the care and conservation of big cats and Madagascan animals.

It is situated at Yaverland near the sea and the staff are really friendly and encourage visitors to participate as much as possible.

Offering a close encounter with a big cat is a brilliant way to get people to appreciate these gorgeous creatures and have a once in a lifetime experience with tigers or a lemur. The zoo also offers tours which are a big success. The friendly guides help you explore the zoo, stopping off to meet the zoo keepers who introduce you to their animals. These are the people who will be able to tell you how much poo tigers do and what the monkeys like for breakfast.

An average time schedule for the zoo is like this

  • 10:30am – Meet the Monkeys
  • 11:00am – Big Cat Tour
  • 11.30am – Zoolittle Farm
  • 12:30pm – Lemur Feeding
