The animal park which opened in 1997 is located in the territory of the former Elistvere manor park. Native wild animals – foxes, roe deer, a bear, lynxes, elks, wild boars, buffalos – are settled in the conditions similar to those they experience in the nature. Those interested may also visit the small rodents’ centre. Nature study trails introduce various plant species with the help of information signs. A boardwalk will take visitors to the viewing platform by Lake Elistvere where one can admire the lake’s rich bird kingdom.
