This is a must-see wildlife park in Rotorua. Paradise Valley Springs is a beautifully maintained park where you can interact with hundreds of animals. All of the wildlife on display is found either wild or farmed around New Zealand – with the exception of our African lion pride and for this reason, the lions are housed and displayed in a slightly separate area of the park.  You can also experience the elevated treetops walkway amongst stunning native bush, and drink pure water straight from the natural spring!

Where can I find a wildlife park in Rotorua?

Paradise Valley Springs is located in a natural valley - Paradise Valley. Only 10-15 minutes drive from Rotorua city and many other Rotorua attractions.

You are encouraged to be hands-on or in close contact with many of the animals to foster an appreciation and love for wildlife through connecting with animals, while also being educated about the challenges a lot of the native species are facing on a day to day basis. Since their first lion cub was born back in 1986 they have also offered the chance for visitors to interact with cubs when they have them.
