My wife and I love animals and of course wanted to use the chance to see the Bisons, ideally in the park. Now it is not easy at all to get to the park (which is probably very good for the park and the bisons)....More

Animals have lots of space here and that is how it should be. However, it also means that the animals are not always visible from close-by. You have to make a bit of an effort and take time to observe. Very much unlike the small...More

Spacious place with lots of space for animals. We truly enjoyed seeing bisons, wolves and other animals. There is great playground and kids loved it in general. I am happy the animals are not cramped there and seem all quite content.

A nice place if you hadn't seen Bison on your trip to Bialowieza. I personally love animals and nature so this place was perfect for me. It's similar to a zoo but feels much more natural. If you have kids this is a perfect place.

It's not the same when you see them wild but worth seeing. Animals are having large territory to run.

Glorious trees, lots of mushroom species, birds and mammals. The guide was excellent, and we saw lots of mammals, including a group of female bison with their calves, a fox, and deer. Also saw cranes, and an owl, as well as several small birds.

See animals up close and personal. Bison, deer, wildcats, wolves, moose, zubron and wild boar. A new visitor centre is being built, so there's a little inconvenience, but that shouldn't put anyone off. It would be unthinkable to visit the area and not go there.

We only went because we had the time. Our walking tour was cancelled. A few animals in open enclosures. Nothing special.

You'd have to travel into Bielska Biala and then get a taxi or trip to the reserve. Unless you've a real passion for bison I wouldn't think it's worth the effort
