Located just off the main road to Cobh, Fota Wildlife Park
was established in 1983 and has more than 70 species of exotic wildlife in open natural surroundings, with no obvious barriers.
Giraffes, zebras, ostrich and antelope roam together in 40 acres of grassland, much as they would in the African Savannah. Monkeys swing through trees on the lakes, and kangaroos, macaws and lemurs have complete freedom of the Park. Only the Cheetahs have a conventional fence.
Facilities at Fota Wildlife Park include Playgrounds, Bisto Wildlife Train, Picnic & Rest Areas, Serengeti Gift Shop and Oasis Restaurannt.
