A family day out at Colchester Zoo this Easter!

As you walk around the zoo there’s plenty of play areas to try out including the indoor soft play area Jungle Tumble so the kids can release their wild side! Learn more about the animals and see them up close by watching an array of encounters, PLUS you can also feed some of our gentle giants at FREE public feeding sessions with our elephants and giraffe! Plus you can purchase a pot of nectar for £1 and hand feed our rainbow lorikeets their favourite treat in our Australian Rainbows aviary.

And don't forget to pop into the ‘Sensation Station’ and have a go at handling some furry friends and scaly species before visiting the Discovery Centre and checking out our NEW Interative Zone!

You can also take part in some fantastic activities!
