Chester Zoo is a world-class hub for wild and wonderful animals. With over 21,000 endangered and exotic creatures, 500 species and 125 acres of islands and habitats, you’re in for a treat.
Firm favourites are the orangutans and Sumatran tigers, but exploration is the name of the game here! You could visit the plains of Africa and see the famous painted dogs. Maybe you’d prefer to head to Indonesia and explore the rainforest? Or perhaps journey to the coral sands of Panay for the Visayan warty pigs. The whole world is your oyster with a wide variety of simulated ecosystems.
The zoo is a registered conservation charity and you can help support their mission by getting involved. There are daily talks, hands-on experiences and regular animal arrivals; take a lazy boat trip, hitch a monorail ride or scamper along the skipping lane! There’s even a junior rangers training camp where you can team up with the zoo rangers and learn all about animal protection and care. You’re in for a jam-packed day of F.U.N, so it’s advised that you plan in advance.
