With over 270 species to see, set in 60 acres of beautiful parkland and lakes, Colchester Zoo is well worth a visit.
As you walk around the zoo there’s plenty of play areas to try out including the indoor soft play area Jungle Tumble with a section for under 3s and play equipment so the kids can release their wild side! Learn more about the animals and see them up close by watching one of over 50 daily displays. You even get the fantastic opportunity to feed the elephants and giraffes yourself and take a ride on the ‘Lost Madagascar Express’ road train! You can also come face to face with Komodo Dragons; see white rhino, giraffes, ostrich and kudu roaming together at Kingdom of the Wild and walk underwater through the 24m tunnel at the Playa Patagonia sealion pool.
Recent additions include ‘Bears of the Rising Sun’, a state of the art enclosure which houses two beautiful sun bears , Jo Jo and Srey Ya and ‘Australian Rainbows’, a tropical walkthrough which houses a large group of lorikeets offering visitors a chance to feed them a treat of nectar.
And don’t forget to pop into the ‘Sensation Station’ and have a go at handling some furry friends and scaly species before visiting the discovery centre and getting your face painted like your favourite animal!
