Where can I see animals in Dundee?

Head along to Camperdown to see over 50 species of rare and incredible animals! From small Scottish Wild Cats to huge European Brown Bears, there is a great variety of amazing creatures to see!

There’s a wonderful world of animals waiting at Camperdown Wildlife Centre – see the majestic wolves prowling their grounds, glowing snowy owls and all kinds of reptiles. Don’t miss the massive brown bears at the fantastic Bear Broch Visitor Centre, where the impressive beasts roam the grounds of a replica ancient Scottish dwelling. You’ll be able to hear Camperdown’s noisiest residents, the Lion-tail macaques and Lar Gibbons, both classed as vulnerable species.

The generally flat terrain makes the walk nice and relaxing, as well as provides good wheelchair access. You can easily spend 2-3 hours at the centre, watching the cute otters swim in their pool or the meerkats pop out of their burrows.
