ZOO MOTHERS DAY 2018 final3


UPDATE:Well the weather has decided NOT to play ball this weekend and unfortunately the Mother's Day free giraffe encounter for mums can not go ahead. BUT we don't want our mums to miss out SO...


Same times, same days, same deal. (19-20 May).

We are still OPEN today and free entry for mum, with a child, still stands and our regular keeper talk schedule will be available.

We've made a change to our annual Mother's Day special and extended it from Sunday to include Saturday as well!  

Choose either day to visit the zoo with mum this weekend.
