Join us on the 17th September for our Starlight Safari Night night with a special PokémonTwist! 

Attention all Pokémon Goers! As well as our fantastic timetable of events we’ll also be releasing a number of ‘Lures’ during our Starlight Safari Night on the 17th September as part of the Pokémon Go UK app!

These will be released at various times throughout the evening within the top area of the zoo so you can catch even more Pokémon at some of our 19 Pokestops and 2 gyms! Keep a close eye out for them on your way in as you pass our patchwork giraffe statue, or as you sit and enjoy a burger next to Jet Set giraffe on our BBQ terrace, or perhaps they be hiding round by our sealion pool...where ever you are at Colchester Zoo be ready to catch’em all!

WiFi is available at Colchester Zoo however you may be required to use 3G/4G mobile signal during some of your trip to fully enjoy the benefits of the lures we lay out! #GottaCatchEmAll
