Egg-splore Tropical world this Easter

Saturday 30 March – Sunday 28 April 2019

Egg-splore Tropical World this Easter, with our exciting twist on the traditional egg hunt.

Do you know the difference between a crocodile and tortoise egg? Or how about an Iguana and python? Look out for eggs from creatures of all shapes and sizes, and learn amazing facts about them along the way.

Plus, meet the keepers who care for all the different species whilst they give them some Easter treats of their own. A timetable of daily feeding times with keeper talk will take place from Monday 1st April through to Sunday 28 April. The times and animals are subject to change. Feeding times will be displayed on site daily. A typical daily feeding timetable will consist of:

  • 10:30am – Bats
  • 11:30am - Meerkats
  • 1:30pm – Birds (South American House)
  • 2:30pm – Meerkats
