Families Go Wild Sighting Bear, Moose, and Burrowing Owls!


There’s nothing like the thrill of the kids or grandkids seeing bears for the first time, and our special Wild Family Getaway package that allows for you to save while you play.

The Best Western Plus Kamloops Hotel located in the heart of Kamloops, BC, is an award winning hotel and consistently receives excellent reviews from our guests on TripAdvisor™.

We enjoy many unique partnerships within our community, and one of note is the British Columbia Wildlife Park, one of BC’s premier wildlife sanctuaries where visitors can get up close and personal to more than 40 species of wildlife.

Bears, Bears, Bears
You may have seen a black bear in the wild before, maybe even a grizzly, but chances are slim that you’ve ever seen the elusive Kermode bear, also known as the “Spirit Bear.” See all three species at the BC Wildlife Park in their large, grassy enclosures and watch them eat, play, and even enjoy a splashy bath.

Here Kitty Kitty
Your housecat may be quick and playful, but it has nothing on the big cats at the BC Wildlife Park. Visit Zoe the Park’s cougar, watch the Canada lynx pounce around their large enclosure, and see Robert the feisty bobcat who is typically most active at dawn and dusk.  

It’s A Bird
The bird sanctuary at the Park is second to none. The viewing area gives you an opportunity to see a myriad of beautiful birds in their spacious homes.  You’ll see Bald Eagles, Barred Owls, a Great Gray Owl, Great Horned Owls, a Ferruginous Hawk, and Burrowing Owls.

Cool Fact: the Park is home to the Burrowing Owl Breeding Centre where many of these little owls are released annually, and two are currently on display in the Park’s Discovery Centre.

There are so many other exceptional wildlife to see like: bison, moose, elk, deer, and many other reptiles and amphibians. See virtually all of them and get a good layout of the Park aboard the Wildlife Express Miniature Train – only $1 per person for a ride! The kids will also get a kick out of running around in the Zippity Zoo Zone Playground, petting farm animals in the Corral, and finishing off the day with a snack at the Blue Heron Café.  Stop on your way out and pick up a souvenir from the gift shop.
