Lakeland Wildlife Oasis


Lakeland's Wildlife Discovery Centre is a unique and exciting blend of exotic wildlife and interactive 'hands-on' displays, which take you through 3,000 million years of evolution and follow the development of life on Earth - from magic molecules to mischievous monkeys.

The North West's favourite little zoo, Lakeland Wildlife Oasis offers you the opportunity to get close to nature. Exhibits range from chameleons to computers, from fossils to fossas and include some of the world's most threatened species which are kept here as part of international breeding programmes.

Butterflies, birds and even bats fly free among the exotic vegetation of the tropical halls which are an ideal venue for wet days. Outside monkeys, lemurs and meerkats can be found, there is even the opportunity to stroke a snake or crawl down a tunnel and pop up in the meerkat enclosure!

The mission of the Lakeland Wildlife Oasis is to engender and foster an interest and appreciation of the natural world which, in our belief underpins wildlife conservation; and, where possible to contribute and encourage contribution to the conservation of wildlife and wild places.

The centre offers a great day out for the whole family and as it is all on one level it is easy for any less able family members to get around.  The café provides a full range of  meals and the animal themed gift shop has a wide range of gifts to suit all pockets.

Situated on the A6 between Carnforth & Milnthorpe(5 mins from the M6 J35).
