Our African Village houses three species of lemur, a mob of meerkats and a group of guineafowl!

MEERKATS

Be immersed in the middle of a true meerkat manor as you watch them socialise, play and forage. You’ll see them exploring their impressive home and you can even feed them in our daily talk.

LEMUR WOODS

Lemur Woods will reopen from 1st August. Face coverings must be worn by all guests. Children under 3 are exempt, but must be carried by a parent/guardian at all times. 

Keep an eye out for our playful ring-tailed lemurs, small white-fronted brown lemurs, & fluffy red-bellied lemurs.

GOAT WALK

Reopening on 1st August.

The Goat Walk allows you to meet and feed our mischievous Somali sheep, pygmy goats and Cameroon sheep.  Save some of your Animal Feed to give to them over their fence! 

There is even the chance to learn more about African Village life inside the African Hut, complete with traditional utensils and living space.

HIPPO LAKES

On the way to the Village, make sure you look out for our pod of wallowing hippos. We have the largest pod in the UK and there is a chance to feed them and learn all about their different personalities at the daily Hippo Encounters.

When a hippo ‘yawns’, it is not a sign of tiredness, but is in fact an aggressive gesture; a warning or start of a fight!
