Our brand new Madagascar PLAY! space is now open and ready and waiting for you to explore. Take a look at the incredible area at the zoo, created especially for you by play specialists…

We welcomed the first lot of adventurers to our new play space over the weekend. The area was inspired by the important region of Madagascar and the conservation work we’re doing to save wildlife there
