If you haven’t got plans to, you should make some! It’s shaping up to be a great August at the Cotswolds Wildlife Park, and there is plenty of fun for the whole family to enjoy.

The park makes for a great day out no matter where you are planning to stay in the Cotswolds. Of course if you are nearby you can pop along for the day, but if you are staying in Cotswolds accommodation for a few days you will find the park very easy to reach.

It is located in Burford, which is located not far from such prime locations as Chipping Norton, Witney, Moreton in Marsh and even Oxford. So as you can see you’ll easily be able to reach it even if you’re not staying in Burford itself.

August is definitely a good month to visit because there are lots of events taking place across the summer holidays. Every weekend in August sees the Birds of Prey take to the skies in a flying demonstration. The kids are sure to love this and it generally gets the attention of the adults too.

But this is not all you can look forward to. You won’t miss out if you don’t visit on the weekends, because there is plenty happening at the Cotswolds Wildlife Park during the week as well. There is a fun A to Z of Amazing Animals taking place every day. The kids get to go around the park finding a huge range of animal answers. There is a competition too so if you take part you can enter it for the hope of winning some nice prizes each week. It’s certainly a good way to get the kids involved in finding out more about the animals at the zoo, and it keeps them entertained as well.

The wildlife park is definitely a good bet for a full day out if you are in the Cotswolds at some point during August. Everyone enjoys seeing a wide range of animals and there are plenty of them here. Some will be familiar to you, such as the monkeys, fruit bats and even a leopard. But there are other more unusual animals to discover here as well, including the capybara and the oryx. Will you be able to spot them without looking at the names given on the enclosures?

The Cotswolds Wildlife Park is situated a short distance to the south of Burford itself. Simply follow the A361 south from Burford and look out for a right hand turn called Handbury Road. The park is just off this road to the left. The postcode to find it if you have a sat nav to use is OX18 4JP.

So now you are armed with all the tempting information you could want about what is happening in the Cotswolds Wildlife Park this August, why not plan a visit there right now? It could be a memorable day out for everyone.
