Wildlife park in Estonia full of deer_Toosikannu

Wildlife park

Welcome to the Estonia’s biggest Wildlife Park!

Our Wildlife Park is not a zoo, you can observe wild animals in the nature and only they decide when and how they will show up. Guest are welcome upon prior reservation.

Wildlife Park at Toosikannu Holiday Center was established in 2013 as the largest privately owned wildlife park in Estonia. Toosikannu Holiday Center was established eight years earlier in May 2005, when the first holiday house was built in the barn of the former Käru manor’s Toosikõnnu cattle farm. The wildlife park spreads on the borders of Järva and Rapla counties on the lands of 12 former farms, and here and there old farmsteads can be seen.

At the present, two of them are in active use: Karupahna can accommodate up to 12 guests and Ale-Sepa, which can accommodate 40 people and has a seminar room and party hall.

There is no hunting in the wildlife park and we ask visitors to have a respectful attitude towards our residents. We ask to not frighten the animals or fly the drones so that the experience could be enjoyed also by the next guests. The whole territory is fenced and the park is still a home for well-known and widespread large animals in Estonia. You might see roe deer, moose, foxes, raccoons and hares, as well as other smaller animals that can easily move in and out through the net fence.

How big is it?

The total area of ​​the wildlife park is 928 hectares and today more than 600 red deer live here. There were only 150 of them when the park was established. The fence around territory is 14 km long.

The length of the observation circle is depending on a season from 9 to 11 km. and there are 6 feeding grounds next to it, where red deer gladly gather in poor times for fresh food. However, they are wild animals living in an wildlife park, who decide themselves when and how much they show up. In hot weather, they do not tend to pose in the sun, so it is wise to plan a visit in the morning or in the evening.

Most of these beautiful animals gather in feeding grounds in winter, when there is a shortage of fresh food in the forest. Deer also like to eat bark, so you can see many felled and carefully peeled trees by the observation circle.

In the spring, the deer’s horns fall and new ones start to grow at an incredible rate to be in combat form for the duration of the fight. They also give birth to cute calves in early summer.

About a dozen moose live on the territory of the park, seeing them is rather rare, but an even happier experience. In addition, since 2008, the nesting place of common crane has been nearby, and quite often these majestic birds also walking in our fields. Our forests also have a nesting place for the majestic sea eagle. All you need to do is bring your binoculars and cameras!
