Starlight Safari Night

Sat 28 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, as well as 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.

Please be aware that Chimpanzee Lookout will be closed from 6pm. 

No smoking is permitted within the park after 5pm

More information coming soon!
