New for 2013
- Marvel at our many new arrivals at Chester Zoo including our (not so giant) giant otter pups, black rhinos, Rothschild giraffes, orangutans, Asian elephant calves and our first ever okapi!
- Mind bogglingly big BUGS! arrive for the summer between 13 July – 3 November. Our amazing exhibition of robotic giants includes stupendous scorpions, extra-large ladybirds and spiders that are anything but incy-wincy. You’ll make some pretty amazing discoveries too. Like the fact that a dragonfly can fly at up to 60 miles per hour and a grasshopper can jump 20 times its own body length.
Enjoy daily animal talks, children’s play areas, themed gardens and a choice of restaurants and kiosks – there’s something to suit everyone’s tastes. Kids and grown ups will love the Zoofari monorail, it gives you a giraffe’s eye view of the zoo. Or, take things a little easier and relax on the Waterbus.
If it’s present ideas you’re after, take a look online at our new range of animal encounters and experience days. There’s something for everyone including lots of gift ideas for friends and family.
