Things to do at the Porfell Wildlife Park and Sanctuary review
Porfell wildlife park and exotic animal sanctuary can be found near Liskeard and Looe in Cornwall. It offers sanctuary to many different animals from around the world that may have come in injured or are illegal imports.
The attraction is quite unlike a zoo. Children and adults can get up close to wildlife, feed the animals, touch them and learn all about the natural world. Animals include meerkats, lemurs, coatis, reptiles and more. They have daily displays (weather permitting) where you can see owls flying.
They even have a Maasai village with huts that have been built using traditional methods. These are next to their African enclosure so you may also spot some zebra, eland and ostrich. The park also has a small children’s play area.
They also offer lemur experiences where you can join the animals while they eat their lunch (8 years and over). You can also be a keeper for a day, both experiences have an additional charge.
Covid 19 – Please check the website or social media of an attraction before visiting. Many places may be open differently and some remain closed. Reviews do not mention all of these changes or possible price changes. Most places now require you to pre-book online in advance.
