Enjoy a full day out with plenty of activities to thrill and entertain you and your family, including daily animal feeding talks, ‘Amazing Animals!’ presentations and one of the most exciting ‘Birds of Prey’ displays in the UK!

See beautiful big cats such as Amur tigers, snow leopards, cheetahs and our beautiful but rare Sri Lankan leopards and their cubs. Spot a huge range of primates including lemurs, monkeys and siamangs as well as our feathered friends such as flamingos, owls, parrots and ibis. ‘Penguin Cove’ also offers our guests the chance to see some of Africa’s coastal birds up close – including our colony of black-footed penguins who breed regularly here at Banham Zoo.
