“To begin with, the team at Yorkshire Wildlife Park, and especially Matthew and Chris, were fantastic and always very committed in making sure that our event was as successful as it could possibly be. Most of the ideas for the event actually came from Matthew who patiently listened to all my thoughts and answered all my questions.

Our corporate half day at YWP started with lunch and a team building activity. Lunch was absolutely delicious and everyone in the team really enjoyed it. The team building activity that Develop-U provided us at the park was excellently organised and the team thought it was a rather unique way of doing team building while learning about animals and their behaviour. The VIP experience was centred on the lions and it was great to be able to hear about the YWP lions’ behaviour, training and feeding.

Our day finished off with a beautiful outdoors BBQ, accompanied by Rock & Soul Machine playing on the background. Once again the team at the YWP really tried to please everyone in the party and everyone had a wonderful time – the food was again delicious and everyone was very impressed how an event in a wildlife park could be this fun! A special thanks to Matthew for keeping everyone in the team in such high spirits during the whole BBQ. The team loved it and it was an absolute delight to be able to host our event at YWP – will definitely do it again when the occasion arises!”Jane Freeman, SDL PLC, Sheffield

“We recently held a dinner at Yorkshire Wildlife Park for our key strategic partners and stakeholders and it couldn’t have been any more successful. From initial booking stage to being looked after on the night we were made to feel like the most important visitors the Wildlife Park has ever had. We wanted something a little ‘outside the box’ and this certainly covered it.

In the Tsavo Lodge with the lions welcoming our guests we could have been anywhere in the world, yet none of this inhibited the use of modern and slick AV equipment and a delicious menu. Since then we’ve also held numerous meetings and events in the Outlook Suite. Again the service, food and staff have been faultless. It’s certainly a venue with a twist and one I would recommend without hesitation.”Louise Bond, Doncaster Chamber

“Our first team building event and an excellent day organised for us by the team at the Wildlife Park. I split my team in two groups of 10, the quiz and search took us round the park and engaged the teams into activities that made them work together to solve the quiz and be competitive and have fun at the same time. The lunch provided was excellent and nothing was too much trouble for the team assigned to us on the day, would definitely recommend this to all companies looking for something different as a team building exercise.”Jane Walker, CEO Team Manager for B&Q
Why did we choose the location? Having new equipment to show to our dealers was the reason for the meeting and seeing them in the flesh as well as the opportunity to drive them was paramount. The open spaces provided were ideal and safe from other visitors allowing first-hand driving experience and demonstrations. The conference room worked well with good viewing from the monitors and screens.

Catering throughout the two days was to a high standard and fitted well to the cold weather. Having this separate from the main room was also a benefit. Some of our delegates managed a short park experience after lunch and were impressed with the array of animals and layout of the park.

The Wildlife Park staff were very courteous and always on hand to guide or assist our delegates. Would we use the YWP again? Yes without question and overall value for money compared to other facilities in the area.”Paul Wade, AgriArgo UK Ltd

“The venue, food and service was first class, the highlight was the very informative and impressive VIP tour in the morning. I would highly recommend your facilities to anyone looking for a very special environment as a meeting venue.”Mark Tillen, UK Director- Blastrac UK
cHRysos HR Solutions Ltd has today held its Annual Graduation Event in the Tsavo Lodge at the Wildlife Park. I would just like to thank Matt and all the team for making the day a success – nothing was too much trouble and it is a stunning venue. Many thanks – we hope to be back next year!”Janice Hepworth, cHRysos HR Solutions
