Visitor Reviews

Review by Dan Thorne, August 2005

I recently visited Marwell zoo, and i was very impressed. They have a huge range of hoofed animals, including zebra, oryx, giraffe, okapi and many species of antelope all in large enclosures without bars. They have animals sharing large open fields like the rhinos and kudus share an enclosure, and seem to get along happily! Big cats are represented well at Marwell, you can see Tigers, cheetahs, leopards and smaller big cats like the serval, ocelots and sand cats. Best of all though are the snow leopards, they have just been moved into a new enclosure called roof of the world, which has a waterfall and rocky outcrop and is a brilliant home for them. They have loads of primates as well. They have very rare golden lion tamarins and many other types of tamarins. They have lots of monkeys like the black and white colobus monkeys, diana monkeys, white faced saki monkeys, macaques and siamangs. Don't miss lemur world, where you walk through glass tunnels, with ring tailed lemurs on one side and ruffed lemurs on the other, they also have mouse lemurs which you can see in the nocturnal house. They have many types of birds and reptiles as well. The restaurant was reasonably priced and had many options of what to eat, also the gift shop was well stocked with souvenirs. I think Marwell has to be one of the best zoos in England and well worth the visit.

Review posted by Andrew Waddington, Sept 2000

Being 100 acres in size, I would expect something special from Marwell, and visitors certainly shouldn't be dissapointed. Whether you're a zoo fan looking for rare species, or looking for a great family day out, Marwell is THE place to visit!

This is certainly a zoo which takes conservation seriously, and it shows. The animal collection is large and diverse, with something for every animal lover to get excited about. Big cats are always popular, and you can see Siberian tigers, Persians leopards and cheetahs, as well as an impressive black jaguar. Probably best of all are the Snow leopards, housed in an enclosure with an attractive rocky backdrop. They have bred here many times in the past. Close by are the Golden lion tamarins, kept on an island where they look beautiful. There is a group of rhinos, and a good childrens farm, Encounter Village, where camel rides are often on offer!

Red pandas here have two separate enclosures, both with a large tree which the adorable little pandas take full advantage of, meaning that trying to spot them can be half the fun! Plenty of space is given over to herd animals, including zebras, oryx and okapis. Be sure not to miss the World of Lemurs, where these lovable animals are seen from a glass tunnel. Look out for the dwarf lemurs here, an animal rarely seen in zoos. Next door another strange animal from Madagascar can be seen: the fossa, which is something like a cross between a puma and a giant weasel! A very recent developement is the giraffe house, which has been rebuilt to house other, smaller African animals as well as the giraffes. Finally, the impressive Penguin World really has to be seen to be believed, its HUGE!

Treetops Restaurant, and the well stocked gift shop are well worth a look, and there is a railway, and a free road train to enjoy too. But be warned......this is a big zoo, and some will find the walk round tiring.

So, if you've never been to Marwell, I suggest you go. If you have, well, there's bound to be something new to see.........!

GoodZoos.com Reviews

The village of Colden Commmon, seven miles from Winchester, is the sort of place that bareely merits inclusion in the map books, but when you find your way there to Marwell Zoological Park you will be very well rewarded. Here is what writer Anthony Smith wrote about Marwell in his book 'Animals on View': "Marwell is a tonic. It can restore faith in those who are wondering whether animals should ever be kept captive for ur satisfaction. It shows that conservation need not be just a platitude ... but a guideline for policy and endeavour."
To those who know Marwell Zoo, it is indeed a tonic; and yet it is one of Britain's newest zoos. Like so many of the best conservation zoos, it owesits existence to a man of vision, an animal lover who came from outside the zoo community without too much luggage ofpreconceived ideas. John Knowles was a successful poultry breeder, and when he started Marwell Zoo, brough with him a valuable insight into animal genetics. He was a stoic and determined man, with a passion for the greatopportunity presented to mankind through an understanding of genetics: to manage small populations of  endangered animals, away from the depredations thatother humans are wreaking upon the remaining wilderness. His animal keepers will tell you how, when he started the zoo in 1972, he used to drive a Rolls Royce. But this was speedily sold to pay fro the zoo's foundation group of Grevy's zebra. 'Zoos are a wonderful way to lose money,' he has said. And yet no one who ever met him could ever imagine him doing anything else. Perhaps this is one reason why the zoo and its work became so quickly well known within the international community of zoos.
In March 1978 the ownership of Marwell in its entirety was passed to a registered charity, the Marwell Preservation Trust. 'As a pilosophical point', Knowlse once said, 'I do not feel comfortable with the concept of an individual owning an endangered species.
Knowles greatest passion were a small group of antelope - the hippotraginae - betterknown as oryx. This group includes some of the rarest and most endangered animals on earth: the Arabian oryx (once extinct in the wild), the gemsbok, the beisa oryx, the addax, and the animal that is still the symbol of Marwell Zoo - the scimitar-horned oryx. This is a striking ivory white animal with sandstone-red flanks 'and magnificent long sweeping horns. Not long after the herd was established at Marwell, itbecame clearthat the wild population was in grave danger. The small population in Chad was threatened by the civil war, and no other individuals had been spotted for some years. Marwell was perhaps the first zoo to identify the threat, and was swift to act. The herd they established in the 1970s bred so well that their descendants have now been sent to other zoos in Britain, Australia, and New Zealand and have also been introduced into the wild in a specially gazetted reserve in Tunisia.
Marwell Zoo occupies a wide swathe of rolling pastureland surrounded by dense woodland, and the zoo seems in places like a large clearing in the woods. The walk around the zoo is not at all demanding, covering a winding figure eight.
Anyone who expects  a traditional zoo with the usual compulsory collection of species may be disappointed by Marwell. There are no elephants here, no penguins, no sealions; for this is a zoo that specialiases in keeping rare and endangered species, and there is just not room enough -or money enough - to keep anything just because it happens to be popular. Many of Marwell's animals may seem unfamiliar at first: the kulan (or Turkmenian wild ass), Malayan tapirs, Przewalski's horses, okapi, sitatunga, barasingha, vicugna and pudu. These are not animals we learn about at nursery school, they do not advertise petrol, and they rarely (if ever) feature in anyone's list of favourite animals. Yet they are beautiful, rare, and precious creatures - and here at Marwell you will see them in plenty.

While many zoos, especially older ones, pride themselves on their buildings, Marwell curiously seems to have few buildings to speak of. Of course there are buildings - but they are all neat, wooden, unobtrusive, and functional. There are no grandiose architectural designs here, very little brick or concrete, very few iron railings or bars. This is a zoo of wire fences, open fields, and wooden stables. The idea is a challenging one, and i does seem to illustrate something fundamental about this zoo. While other zoos are planning grand new buildings - Marwell is planning its animal management programme.

The one building that does dominate the park is Marwell Hall, a Tudor mansion that sits at the centre of the estate looking down across the scimitar horned oryx herd, the showpiece of the zoo. The gardens of the hall are now home to a variety of smaller animals.

Most estate zoos are pleasant places to walk around. After all, the reason they became country estates in the firstplace was because they were beautiful places to live. Marwell is no exception. The landscape is green and tranquil, and the animals seem somehow to belong here. Perhaps that is a side effect of the low profile buildings - the zoo doesn't look as if it has been engineered to look after its occupants. The scale is always human, comfortable, non threatening. And there always seems to be something new around every corner.

Itis hard to avoid the feeling at Marwell thatthis zoo represents exactly what all zoos should be , need to be, if all our platitudes about conserving wildlife are ever to be anything more than hot air. It proves that conservation zoos need not be dull, they can be exciting, attractive, entertaining places. Marwell, like Jersey, like Howletts and PortLympne, represents a whole rethinking of European zoos. Its influence will last for a very long time
