HELLO! WELCOME TO COLCHESTER ZOO
There's always a new story to tell at Colchester Zoo, from welcoming new arrivals, to exciting things to see and discover.
Impala release at Colchester Zoo's UmPhafa Reserve!
On the 6th July, a group of 45 impala were released onto Colchester Zoo’s UmPhafa Private Nature Reserve!
This release will bring the population of impala on UmPhafa to over 200 in total! In recent years, the number of impala births on UmPhafa has decreased, so it is hoped that by bringing this new mixed group, we can encourage further breeding amongst this species on the reserve.
Did you know? The impala is a noisy antelope but also well known for its leaping and high kicks!
5.00pm close or dusk if earlier
Last admission to zoo grounds at 4.00pm
