See over 500 animals including Tigers, Rhino, Penguins, Giraffe and Chimpanzees in their award-winning habitats. Enjoy memorable moments as you hand feed the Lorikeets, pet the goats, walk with Lemurs and more.

Let your little monkeys run wild around our outdoor play areas which have now re-opened with Covid-19 secure measures in place.PLUS your little ones can travel in style as they take the wheel of their own Safari Car and travel along the track around Explorer Zone.

With so much to see and do, now is the time to book your ticket to the zoo and ensure they survive this summer.
