Get Close...in Unexpected Ways!
From bears and boas, macaws to monkeys, panthers to pythons, and alligators to zebra, amazing experiences and hundreds of exciting new exotic animal friends await you in this 50-acre park!
Catoctin Wildlife Preserve features more interactive touch and feed opportunities than any other animal park in the region. Feel the silky soft fur of the chinchilla or the bumpy shell of a tortoise at daily educational talks. Or get nose to nose with camels, bison, ostrich, zebra and more on the optional Safari Ride.
You will be welcomed by natural ponds, lush landscaping, and wandering Ambass-zoo-dors, eager to indulge inquisitive guests.
These amazing animals are our extended family and vital ambassadors for their species. Through our personal style of exhibitory and education, we know that they will be your extended family too.
Together we can make sure all the wild animals enjoy the future they deserve.
