Over 2000 weird and wonderful animals and exotic creatures await your arrival at Belfast Zoo. With 140 different species to explore this is a real animal lovers paradise.

Here you’ll get to see majestic Barbary lions, hopping mad red kangaroos, spider monkeys and even gigantic Malayan sun bears. With so much choice it will be hard to decide who to visit first. Strike a pose next to the pride of lions or a chimpanzee at the photography base camp. Stop off at the zoovenir shop for some animal themed gifts. With daily talks and feeding sessions, there’s so much to learn and discover.

Visit the exotic birds in the Bird Park, hang out in the Rainforest House with Jasmine the two-toed sloth, explore the play park and farm at the lake side. Then after all that, refuel for a tasty treat at The Lion’s Den or Treetop Tea Room.
