On 14 and 15 December, we will host our festive 'Wildlife Wonderland' event.

This event provides visitors with the opportunity to see the zoo’s 120 species of animals take part in festive fun. Visitors can wrap presents for the animals and see Santa deliver these around the 55-acre site. Visitors can also take part in Christmas crafts, win prizes with a reindeer trail, meet a selection of animals, and pose for photos with Santa and Mrs Claus.

Wildlife Wonderland’s unique event is suitable for both families and adults and does not include a Grotto experience. Normal admission price applies.

The event takes place on Saturday 14 and Sunday 15 December from 10am until 4pm, with last admission into the zoo at 2.30pm.

Visitors are advised to arrive as early as possible to take part in all of the activities available. Advance booking is not required however, it is recommended. You can book your tickets online here.

For those who can’t make the event, the Zoo offers a variety of ‘purr-fect’ Christmas gifts. Popular presents include Junior keeper for a day, animal feeding experiences, animal adoptions, annual membership and gift vouchers or stock up on stocking fillers with a ‘zooper’ gift from the Zoovenir Shop.

Junior and adult gift packs are new for 2019, offering a discounted combination price for interactive experiences, adoptions and memberships
