More free daily experiences

These Summer school holidays we're adding loads of extra animal feeds and Meet-a-Keeper events to our daily timetable, including extra opportunities to see the elephants, chimpanzees and otters during feeding time, as well as chat to our Bird Keepers as they feed our spectacular birds that call our aviaries home. 

Plan your day around these new experiences and our regular daily timetable of activities to make the most of your visit.

Under construction: Savannah

If you're visiting over Summer, you may notice that a lot is changing at the Zoo. That's because we're creating a new African adventure, Savannah.

Among the animals that will call Savannah home are African Lions, Fennec Foxes, Zebra, Giraffe and Meerkats. Be inspired by wildlife, stories and songs from the vast Savannah grasslands when our new adventure opens.

The Savannah is a part of our 10 year Centenary capital revitalisation plan that began with the opening of Tiger Trek, a world-class, immersive wildlife experience aimed at educating and inspiring guests to help make a positive difference for critically endangered wildlife.

We understand there is never a good time to build a better Zoo, however the work we are investing in is to improve our animal habitats and deliver experiences that influence positive behaviour change to support the future of our wildlife.
