Start by admiring our magnificent Asian elephant herd! These gentle giants are fascinating to watch as they stroll across their habitat and go for a splash in the pool. Check out the immersive display where you can use your senses to smell, see and hear like an elephant!

You’re in for a treat next, when you take a stroll over to Madagascar for our Lemur Walkthrough! This is an experience not to be missed, where you’ll have the unique opportunity to walk among these playful creatures. Try to see how many lemurs you can spot, as they leap through the trees and scamper along the paths around you!

Meander through our beautiful Madagascar Grasses towards Bats Bridge and enjoy being one with nature! (Please note: Our wooden Bats Bridge is not fully accessible for wheelchair users, who may prefer going back over Elephant Bridge).

Some exciting indoor spaces to enjoy along the way…

Immerse yourself in a tropical adventure with the Butterfly Journey walkthrough, where you’ll get up close and personal with our free-flying butterfly collection!

Make your way to the Spirit of the Jaguar where you’ll have the chance to come face to face with our incredible jaguar, observe the gentle behaviour of the two-toed sloth and discover the underwater habitat of the Amazon!

Journey through the Tropical Realm. Let the soothing sounds of the waterfall and beautiful birdsong wash over you while you discover colourful reptiles, amphibians and free-flying birds.

Step inside a colourful haven full of exotic plants and treat yourself to a visual and sensory feast at The Plant Project. This is a perfect time of year to see our rare orchids blossom!

It’s time to take a short walk past the Andean bears on the way to your very own wildlife expedition through six South East Asian islands! Discover Islands and experience what it’s like to be a real life conservationist. You’ll see awe-inspiring animals like our Sumatran tiger, and venture through the dense jungles of Monsoon Forest with its rare plants and our family of orangutans.

Exciting extra: Look out for signs to the Lazy River Boat Trip on Sumba island and discover Islands from a different perspective. As you meander down the river, listen out for the many different sights and sounds.
