African Animals

In African Animals, students will be taken on a tour by a member of our dedicated Discovery & Learning staff around the meerkats, lions and zebras enclosures bringing to life the role camouflage plays in the survival of animals in the wild. Students will compare and contrast the different colours in the wild and compare colours of predators and prey.

Please note that this session takes place outdoors and is a walking tour. Please wear appropriate clothing and footwear. The meeting point for this tour is the Meerkat enclosure in the Africa Zone.
