Get closer to some of the hairiest, scariest, tallest and smallest animals. ZSL London Zoo has almost 750 species of animal, from the smallest monkey to the tall giraffe.
Probably the world's most famous zoo, ZSL London Zoo has been entertaining and delighting visitors since it opened to the public in 1847. With over 760 animal species, exciting and innovative new exhibits and heritage listed buildings almost as famous as their inhabitants, it's a great day out!
Land of the Lions
ZSL London Zoo has opened its biggest and most breath-taking experience yet: Land of the Lions. Home to a pride of endangered Asiatic lions, the £5.7m Land of the Lions features an awe-inspiring 'windowless-view' of the big cat's enclosure. Enter the crumbling ruin of an amphitheatre-style Lion Temple and see the majestic big cats roaming just metres away, separated only by fine wires. Land of the Lions will help to support ZSL's international conversation efforts to protect Asiatic Lions.
Visitors to Tiger Territory will embark on a journey through an Indonesian habitat, coming face-to-face with beautiful tigers through the floor-to-ceiling glass windows. Tiger Territory takes visitors closer than ever to the natural environment of one of nature's most awesome predators and brings to light the conservation issues these creatures face in the wild.
Penguins & Gorillas
Head down to the beach and observe London’s largest colony of Humboldt Penguins as they swim, dive, frolic and feed. Move through lush forested pathways and come face to face with the majestic Western Lowland Gorilla, and wander from day through into night in London’s only living rainforest.
In with the Lemurs
In with the Lemurs is the brand new walk-through exhibit at ZSL London Zoo, where you can get closer than ever before to 15 ring-tail lemurs and one black and white ruffed lemur. Enter a woodland habitat and embark on a journey through the Madagascan shrub forest where the evolutionary unique primates will be leaping, climbing and possibly sunbathing with no barriers between you and them.
Meet your favourite farm animals like cows, sheep, pigs, goats and chickens in this hands-on petting zoo, alongside some less common animal species like llamas and alpacas.
ZSL London Zoo’s Animal Adventure opens 31 July 2019
ZSL London Zoo’s brand new Animal Adventure zone will take young visitors on a journey of discovery to meet animals ranging from eagle owls and porcupines to mongooses and meerkats – and they will be able to find out more about these creatures’ secret and often surprising lives in the wild.
Daily talks at Animal Adventure will delve into some of nature’s epic journeys – llamas trekking across the Andes, or young meerkats setting out on their own to find a mate and establish their own family group.
Specially designed for young animal lovers with low barriers allowing them to feel like they’re right in the heart of the action, watching the animals behave just as they would in the wild, and there’ll be plenty of opportunities to meet ZSL’s expert keepers and get the inside story on their work.
With a new play area including water splash zone too, Animal Adventure is the ultimate zoo experience for young pups. The new Animal Adventure will include a catering kiosk offering hot drinks, snacks and tempting extras so you can be relaxed and refuelled, ready for exploring the rest of the zoo.
