A visit to Marwell Wildlife is a chance to get up close to the wonders of the natural world and help save them.

Marwell is a zoological park set in 100 acres of delightful Hampshire countryside, six miles south-east of Winchester. There's a real sense of purpose at Marwell - the conservation of endangered species. There are animals from almost every continent at Marwell – white rhinos, Amur tigers, cheetah, zebra, giraffe, tamarins, macaques, gibbons, tapirs, and leopards to name but 10 out of the 200 species at the zoo. Tropical World - experience a spectacular rainforest environment.

World of Lemurs - with unique Madagascan primates. Penguin World for thrilling underwater views. Heart of Africa with African forest animals and a stunning aquarium. Giraffe walkway - a 30 metre walkway into the giraffe paddock. Birds galore! Owls, cranes, ostrich, rhea, flamingos, lovebirds and kookaburras. See an animal alphabet from ants to zebras – all in a day.

Keeper Encounters daily and animal talks holidays and weekends. Adventure playgrounds Road and rail trains, a variety of catering outlets and Ark Gift Shop. The park was founded in 1972 by John Knowles, a conservationist who recognised the need to save animals from extinction. Marwell has over 500,000 guests a year - including 30,000 children and students to its Education Centre. There are events during the year – including themed weeks, fun days and a fabulous wildlife art exhibition.
