Advantages Clean and well maintained, happy animals,good facilities for everyone and great fun filled day out
Disadvantages Cafe a bit expensive (but aren't they all)
Have been going to the Seaview Wildlife Encounter on the Island every year for I can't remember how long. It used to be Flamingo Park. We live on the Island an generally tend to do all the tourist attractions in the summer holidays. We haven't been this year yet but went late last year. It wasn't the best weather, it was quite cold and rained a few times we were there but we didn't regret going!Lets start with a description The Seaview wildlife encounter is based on the Isle of Wight, a wildlife park open since 1971, family run and have received many awards over the years. I would recommend this place to anyone living on the Island or visiting, with children or not! It's a great day out! First off Opening Hours
When we first arrive at the Wildlife park there is ample parking (which is free). You go through and pay and receive a free map and programme of events. You can also purchase bird food. I would definitely advice this! I can't remember how much it is a bag (I think a £1) but the amount of ducks and birds that wonder round the park willing to let you close and touch if you have a bag of food is amazing. As soon as we walk into the gates loads of ducks come over. My little girl loves this, to get so close and feed the ducks the bird feed out of her hand.It is well sign posted and we generally just follow the trail round, a lot of gravel and bumpy stones, but no steps (all slopes). Beautiful scenery with small rivers and lakes, and plenty of animals to look at! You can go round and see the flamingos, parrots, pelicans, owls and other birds, Alpacas, Meerkats, Otters, Penguins and Wallabies and more.
All the keepers are very helpful and friendly, they are willing to talk to you about all the animals and even answer all the children's mad questions. With loads of events where you can see feeding and even help feed the animals.11.00am PELICAN BAY
All the animals look very well cared for, clean and happy. All the exhibits look well maintained and clean.
