Make a beeline for Edinburgh Zoo. Come and visit the 1000+ rare animals and watch the UK’s only giant pandas nibbling on bamboo!
On loan from China for 10 years these pandas are a must-see for animal lovers. Check out their state of the art enclosure and see Tian Tian (Sweetie) and Yang Guang (Sunshine) whilst you still can. Kids will love meeting the bright pink flamingos, cool koalas and a hilarious hippopotamus.
Waddle over to one of Europe’s largest penguin enclosures at Penguin Rock. Most days there is the penguin parade where the little guys strut their stuff, and there’s also a diving board for the penguins to leap into the pool. Make sure to say hey to the mischievous meerkats, chimpanzees and Scottish Wildcats. Do you dare meet the reptiles and amphibians at Wee Beasties?
