Paradise is home to approximately 800 unique wild creatures, including five different big cat species, making it the only zoo in the UK to do so. Paradise is home to the UK's most incredible collection of tiny monkeys and the world's most enormous Anaconda.

The Zoological Society of Hertfordshire's Paradise Wildlife Park is located 20 miles north of London, 7 miles from M25 Junction 25, and roughly 25 minutes by rail from London Liverpool Street.


Paradise Wildlife Park, located in Broxbourne, Hertfordshire, England, is a family-run wildlife park and charity. Previously known as Broxbourne Zoo was renamed Paradise Wildlife Park in 1984 after taking over by the Peter and Grace Sampson family. Lynn Whitnall, their daughter, took over as CEO in 2017 and maintained the family business. In 2017, they became the Zoological Society of Hertfordshire (ZSH), a registered charity (no.1108609) that collaborates with Paradise Wildlife Park. The government does not support the zoo. TripAdvisor has rated it Hertfordshire's finest outdoor attraction every year since 2017.

In 2021, the wildlife park hoped to open the UK's first mixed habitat for sun bears, binturongs, and Asian short-clawed otters, as well as the UK's first jaguar habitat. The zoo's debut television series, CBBC's One Zoo Three, premiered in 2020. Cameron, Tyler, and Aaron Whitnall, three brothers from Smarden, Kent, who jointly run Paradise Wildlife Park and its sister site, The Big Cat Sanctuary, were highlighted.

In 2018, the Park debuted "World of Dinosaurs," an animated dinosaur adventure path. Over 30 life-size animatronic dinosaurs can be found on the path. There's also an outdoor paddling pool, On Safari Adventure Golf, the 'Rex Express' train, and five indoor and outdoor adventure play zones.


Over 800 creatures live in Paradise Wildlife Park, including small mammals, pasture and farmyard animals, birds, primates, reptiles, and large cats. They are the home of Siberian tigers, snow leopards, ocelots, and jaguars. They also have white lions there.

Breeding has been successful in Paradise Wildlife Park, breeding endangered species such as marmosets, tamarins, Burmese pythons, and lovebirds. As part of the EEP Breeding Programme, many animals are bred.

They have about 130 bird species (over 1,000 birds in total), gorgeous Red pandas, uncommon Red squirrels, amusing Asian otters, lovely mini donkeys, entertaining pygmy goats, sheep, and adorable rabbits and guinea pigs.

The Park's wildlife collection is diverse, including a giant cat enclosure for cheetahs, lions, jaguars, tigers, and snow leopards that is particularly remarkable. Many of these creatures have given birth in recent years as part of the European Endangered Species Programme, indicating the Park's practical commitment to the species' survival (EEP). Any of the numerous keepers who are on hand to lead you through the Park and answer any questions you may have may explain the technical aspect of the program, which tries to maintain genetic variability in the many species for them to spread.
