South Lakes Wild Animal Park Dalton

South Lakes Wild Animal Park is one of Europe's finest conservation animal parks housing some of the world's rarest species. Uniquely to Britain it is home to both Sumatran and Siberian tigers, as well as African lions.

There are animals from many continents, some free roaming, and informative talks featuring endangered species such as rhinos and tigers are a highlight of the day. The Dunes Hotel is less than a mile away from South Lakes Wild Animal Park.
