Farm Animals have a Spring in their Step

22nd March 2013

Visitors have been oohing and aahing at the sight of cute chicks and fluffy rabbits that have been born in time for the Easter holidays.

With nature waking up from its long sleep there is no better time to visit our fantastic farm which is also the largest zoo in Bristol. As well as the usual crop of gorgeous baby lambs, chicks and rabbits, we have also just welcomed meerkat triplets, ideal for anyone who is looking to compare the meerkats! With the long bank holiday approaching families will be looking for ways to enjoy days out in Bristol. Noah’s Ark Zoo Farm is ideal for all weathers as we offer indoor and outdoor play areas but we will be hoping for some spring sunshine during our annual Easter egg hunt.

Our zoo staff have painstakingly laid out a thrilling Easter trail for children and families to follow with lots of chocolatey and sweet surprises! There will be chances to interact and play throughout the day - adults and children can take part in the novelty egg and spoon race which is always a barrel of laughs. You can also get creative making some fun Easter crafts with egg painting and face painting. As always at Noah’s Ark Zoo Farm part of the fun is the chance to get hands on with the animals, handling our sweet baby new chicks and bottle-feeding the new born lambs.

Come handle our fluffy chicks

Noah’s Easter Egg Hunt takes place between Saturday, March 30 and Monday, April 1, we hope to see you here! While visiting you can also see the progress of our fantastic Elephant Eden project. The deep sand yards are just being laid down now. While most elephant enclosures in Europe just use concrete, we have gone the extra mile to create a habitat that the elephants will really love and which will be beneficial to their health too.
