Details

There’s so much to see and do this 50th birthday year at Banham Zoo! See tigers, sloths, leopards, giraffe and monkeys as well as our brand new Sea Lion Bay where you can also see our newest arrival – our California Sea Lion pup!

Enjoy a full day out with plenty of activities to thrill and entertain you and your family, or maybe even treat yourself to one of our fantastic on the day experiences getting closer to either our tigers, cheetah, giraffe, owl, hawk, armadillo, iguana, meerkats or baboons.

Join us for our daily animal feeding talks, ‘Amazing Animals!’ presentations and one of the most exciting ‘Birds of Prey’ displays in the UK! Also enjoy the Free Safari Road train; indoor and outdoor play areas and fun and interactive sessions in our ‘Activities & Education Centre’.

Check out our amazing subtropical house ‘Eureka!’, where free-flying birds and butterflies can be seen amongst the luscious planting – and make sure you spot our fascinating pair of two-toed sloths. See beautiful big cats such as Amur tigers, snow leopards, cheetahs and our beautiful but rare Sri Lankan leopards and their cubs. Spot a huge range of primates including lemurs, monkeys and siamangs as well as our feathered friends such as flamingos, owls, parrots and ibis. ‘Penguin Cove’ also offers our guests the chance to see some of Africa’s coastal birds up close – including our colony of black-footed penguins who breed regularly here at Banham Zoo.

To round off the perfect family day out, the Zoo offers an excellent choice of eating facilities, a fantastic gift shop, free car parking, disabled facilities and much more.

As part of our 50th birthday celebrations, there will be many new and exciting events taking place throughout the year, so check out our website or follow Banham Zoo’s social media to ensure you don’t miss out!
