We are a small zoo in mid-Wales, between Aberystwyth and Machynlleth, only a short walk from the Borth railway. A sanctuary for exotic animals and a place to relax. Visit us for a day to remember!

We visited Borth Wild Animal Kingdom in October 2017. You expect any Zoo to be busy but the carpark was empty. We paid for two adult entries we thought was reasonably priced when they accommodate large mammals (Lion, Lynx, Leopard) The staff behind the kiosk...More

A lot of good work being done here for animal rescue/welfare. Our children loved the place and it is good value compared with other attractions in the area.

The animals were in tiny dirty cramped cages. The ball pool looked like it hadn’t been cleaned in a very long time. My daughter had a great time and the cafe was acceptable, however the conditions the animals were kept in is very concerning.
