Porfell Wildlife Park & Sanctuary

Get Up Close to the World’s Wildest Animals

Where in the UK can you stroke farmyard animals, join a Lemurs’ tea party and encounter zebra, ostrich, meerkats and antelope in an authentic African Maasai village – all in a single day? Answer: only a few minutes drive from Liskeard.

For 22 years, Porfell Wildlife Park & Sanctuary has been South East Cornwall’s hidden tourist gem, rescuing animals worldwide from other parks and zoos. Set amid rolling fields and untouched woodland, it teems with exotic species that delight children and adult alike.

There’s so much to do at Porfell, it can easily take all day. Experience the new African Adventure: get your passport stamped at border control, trek past safari camp to a real mud hut village and discover the ways of the Maasai warriors. Then, see snakes, wallabies, marmosets and more, take a nature walk, join a ‘meet the animals’ session, feed farm creatures up close and feed yourself at the Peacock Tearooms. It’s a wonderful family experience, open every day from Easter to October, whatever the weather.

PS: Lemurs Tea Party requires advance booking but it’s an unforgettable encounter, perfect for your child’s birthday.
