Explore more Food & Drink

Visiting the zoo can be hungry work! If you find yourself in need of something to eat, our food and drink outposts are dotted all around the zoo.

They are the perfect place for a summer cooler and winter warmer, as well as lots of other light bites and delicious snacks! If you’re having too much fun exploring the grounds and habitats to stop for a full meal, our outposts offer an ideal place to recharge your batteries before you get going again.

Our menu

Ice creams, slush, hot and cold snacks and drinks are all available from our outposts!

You can enjoy delicious ice creams which are all available from our refreshment outposts.

Soft serve is only available from the District Office on Islands or the Arara Outpost by Spirit of the Jaguar.


Opening Hours: Please be aware that are outposts operate seasonally. Details of opening times can be obtained from Guest Services on the day of your visit.
