Bear in mind . . .

Shop

Our shop sells soft toys, clothes, books and a lot more. We also stock hand-made woollen products from the Snow Leopard Trust, which is working to save Mongolia’s snow leopards. By buying these items, you are helping to give the snow leopard a future, while also improving the lives of the local inhabitants in Mongolia.

Dogs and pets

We love them too, but not in the park. For the safety and health of our animals, we can’t let you bring pets inside.

Don’t feed our animals

The animals at Nordens Ark have a diet that’s specially designed for them. Unsuitable food can make them ill. Various infections and diseases can be passed from humans to animals.

Show respect for the animals

Always remember that you’re a guest in their home. Don’t frighten them by banging on terrariums, screaming or disturbing them in other ways. 

Safety barriers

Don’t climb over or under the safety barriers, and don’t sit on them. They are there to keep you at a safe distance from the wild animals, and to avoid accidents and injury.

Barbecues

Barbecues are allowed only by the playground at the entrance to the animal park, and at the new play area at the Farm. Because of fire regulations, you must not light a barbecue anywhere else.

Smoking in the park 

Because of the risk of fire, smoking in the park is permitted only in designated places by the Wolf Lodge and the Wetlands.
