Camperdown Wildlife Centre, Camperdown Country Park, Coupar Angus Rd, Dundee DD2 4TF, UK – 01382 431818
There is a modern and well stuffed entrance building that includes a small gift shop and restaurant. The park itself has some a good mix of wildlife that appear to be kept in well maintained enclosures. In places the visitor areas of the park are looking a little tired but it could have been that I visited just before they cut the grass. The park includes some of the following wildlife. Piano goats, tortoises, rheas, lemurs and other small monkeys, brown bears, bats, meercats, guinea pigs, birds of prey, storks, peacocks, ibis and a beautiful macaw. The size of the park is perfect for kids. It takes over an hour to saunter round and spot every thing (longer if you were to read all the info). If you want a day out you can enjoy the park setting before going in as there is hours of entertainment just outside the park's gates.
I will give 4 stars as the parkland is well kept and very relaxing. Plenty of places to get away from people even on a busy day. Unfortunately the cafe is a disgusting rip of, seriously over priced and poor quantities. This is Dundee where normal working people live. It is not millionaire land, oil worker land or central London.
