Welcome to ARK wildlife park, Britain’s rescue zoo and Lincolnshire’s New wildlife park.

At the ARK you will find a wide variety of fascinating animals from exotic mammals, stunning reptiles to fearsome carnivores and farmyard friends.

The majority of our diverse collection of beautiful resident animals are rescues who have come into us over the years when we were originally a private rescue sanctuary for exotic animals.

Open all year, with indoor attractions such as our Tropical house, Activity barn and Meerkat/familiar friends barn, we also have a large outdoor play area and Kalahari Cafe offering locally made cakes, savouries and drinks.

Through out the year we’ll have themed events, not to mention our popular animal encounter shows and term-time toddler specials.

Visit the ARK, for a truly wild time.

Opening Times

The Wildlife park is open daily from 10-5 during the summer season, 10-4 during the winter, everyday of the year except Christmas and Boxing day.

Last admission time one hour before closing.

The Kalahari Cafe opens daily from 10 am and is also open to the public.
