Penguins

From the way they waddles, to their tuxedo like feathers, no one can resist the loveable charms of a penguin. Here at ZSL Whipsnade Zoo, we’re lucky enough to feature two penguin colonies: African black-footed and Rockhopper.

Penguin Pool

You can find these two groups of penguins living in an amazing natural environment, featuring custom penguins pools, stunning Dunstable views and even rock formations for our (you guessed it) rockhoppers.

Everyday visitors can learn about these endearing flightless birds through our feeding time talks. As our colonies tuck into their dinners, our presenters will share some amazing facts about these birds that originate all the way from around South America.
