Öster Malma Wildlife Park

With our Wildlife Park we want to give everyone who come here an opportunity to see Swedish wildlife animals in their natural habitat. The park is also used for instruction. Here it’s important to embrace the fact that this is wildlife, even though all animals are kept in the park are bred in captivity. We believe that the moose, who is the king of the forest, should have full access to our forests, and the red deer to its marshland. The animals will therefore not be standing on display behind the fence, but instead be seen in their natural environment.

During the period October to April, all the clover game is in the winter hedges. This means that they move to a larger area and thus are harder to see. Our bird aviaries are closed during this period.

Admission tickets
Admission tickets are sold at Öster Malma’s reception and farm shop

Dogs
Visitors are not allowed to bring dogs into the wildlife park as this may cause distress to the animals in the enclosures.

Summer and winter enclosures

During May – August all animals are kept in their summer enclosures, located along the short walking trails that traverse the Wildlife Park. Along the trails are a number of boards with information about the different species and their ecology. The signs are in Swedish, English and German. During the rutting period in September, the wildlife park is closed, and some of the animals are separated to avoid fighting. The animals are let out in large winter enclosures, which means that they may be harder to see. When walking in Öster Malma Wildlife Park you will also see a number of birds, such as capercaillie, grey partridge and the rare lesser white-fronted goose. During the winter months, however, the aviaries are closed as the birds are kept inside.

Wild boar and the game conservation trail

A short walk through the beautiful landscape just outside the wildlife park takes you to the inquisitive and sociable wild boars. The game conservation trail offers a mile-long walk (in ordinary shoes) where you meet wildlife and learn about wild animals in the area.
