Come face-to-face with over 900 animals of more than 150 species, including some of the most endangered on our planet! Set in over 80-acres, immerse yourself in some of the Zoo‚s fascinating exhibits including: the South American Tropical House, a tropical experience with simulated thunder and lightning and tropical rainfall; the Borneo Longhouse, where a pathway winds through a sequence of exotic bird and animal exhibits surrounded by landscaped aquatic gardens and Uda Walawe, a Sri Lankan themed elephant walkway which gives stunning, uninterrupted views of four females Asian elephants. Last year saw the unveiling of Bush Dog and Coati Island, new Owl Aviaries and Penguin Lagoon, whilst 2013 welcomes a ground breaking exhibition called Dinosaur Valley, Amur leopard exhibit, a lemur walk-through and SO much more! The Zoo also features its own Wetlands area, providing a unique haven for visitors to soak up the great British wildlife our country has been blessed with! The world-class Himalaya Centre delivers fantastic food in a 300 seat all-day restaurant overlooking a Himalayan themed snow leopard enclosure; fabulous shopping, unrivalled conference facilities in Windows on the Wild and fine art in Twycross Gallery, bringing a host of fun and entertainment under one roof.
