BIG 5 - an experience for adventurers big and small
Are you big enough to find the BIG 5 at ZSL Whipsnade Zoo?
Visit the five 'action stops' to meet and learn all about this majestic quintet.
Interactive challenges, talks and experiences
Take a peek through the rustic bear hide, check the tracking guide and see whether you can spot our cuddly foursome of European Brown Bears - Wellington, Winslow, Wendy and Penny.
Try out the wheel of fortune at the Lions of the Serengeti and find out how a pride’s lunch is a lottery in the wild or see how you measure up to the size of a giraffe.
At elephants check out the weight of their huge feet with our built-to-scale model and find a fun way to pit your hearing against that of a pachyderm.
En route around the BIG 5 stops catch our colourful and enlightening explainer talks and keeper feeds.
Find out more about your favourite animals
The lion feed gives exciting insights into these big cats and their desire for food (and sleep!), the bear brunch is an enchanting time to watch the cuddlesome four and be enthralled at the Lubetkin former elephant arena as our keepers take time out to explain about their wonderful giants as you meet them face to face.
