As you step inside Colchester Zoo you are transported into a world full of magnificent animals waiting to be discovered. Learn about the animals as you see them up close and why not watch one of many daily displays. You even get the 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.
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!
Colchester Zoo has a full calendar of events throughout the year including their summer holiday campaign events, annual spook-tacular Shriek Week in October half term and the zoo’s Magic of Christmas events on selected dates throughout December. All of which are packed full of fantastic activities for all the family!
Colchester Zoo also offers a range of delicious food options through our different catering outlets located across the zoo. We also have 2 souvenir gift shops and unique products and experiences available to make your day even more memorable!
