A whole load of family fun
Animal Adventure, our new children's zoo, allows children the chance to immerse themselves in the sights, sounds, smells and experiences of life in the animal kingdom.
Animal Adventure - the game!
Check out our photo gallery of some of the exciting animals in Animal Adventure, our new Children's Zoo, along with some interesting facts about them.
Inspiring the next generation
So, how is it, because of the actions of the adults that those children grow into, that over a quarter of the world’s wildlife is threatened with extinction?
Abbey supports ZSL’s educational mission and has provided funding to create Animal Adventure’s Tipi and to create a poster for schools - helping ZSL to inspire the next generation about wildlife.
Introducing Animal Adventure
Tree Top Zone
Start your adventure at Treetop Village and meet the coatis who make their lives among the leaves. Kids will have the freedom to climb, swing and visit the lookout towers for a treetop view of the world.
From the tops of the trees down to the roots, visitors will be led through the earth to explore an underground world. A network of tunnels lets kids explore, challenge their fears and meet underground animals in their own habitats.
Our water-based zone near the café lets children play and learn how water gives life and the importance of conserving the environment. This area allows kids to become active in our mini stream, take a seat in our secret garden or be enchanted by some story telling in the tipi.
Our Touch Zone lets children get hands on to groom and feed our goats and sheep as well as meet our donkeys, llamas and kune-kune pigs.
Wild about games?
What better way to pass an hour, an afternoon or even a whole day than playing ZSL's collection of wild games and interactive books.
Close encounters: breaking down barriers
When ZSL London Zoo first opened in the 1820s, most Britons didn’t know what a giraffe looked like. Today, people are not only familiar with such animals, they want to interact with them and protect them.
