Starlight Safari Night

Sat 14 September 2019 09:30 - 21:30

Enjoy a magical twilight spectacular at Colchester Zoo with an extended opening until 9.30pm and a timetable packed with special feeds, displays and training sessions.

As the temperature drops and the senses sharpen, a host of feeds and activities will take place to show off the animal’s skills to their finest as lions, tigers and wolves show why they really are deadly in the darkness! With additional events to entertain, this really is a Safari not to be missed!

If it is your appetite that needs satisfying, you can always stop by Penguini's or quench your thirst at the Waterhole, or simply escape to the a relaxing environment of our table service restaurant, The Patisserie, where you can enjoy an indulgent treat or even a glass of wine.

Do bring a torch with you for extended opening events. Animal viewing except for timetabled additional feeds cannot be guaranteed after dark.

Ride the lost Madagascar Express and visit the lemur paradise at this magical time of day! - Last train 8:30pm
