Planning Your Zoo Visit?
26th August 2015
With just a couple of weeks left of the summer holidays, now is the perfect time to start planning your zoo visit! Whether you’ve been to Noah’s Ark Zoo Farm a million times before or it’s somewhere you keep meaning to visit, there’s one thing for sure: it’s a place where you are guaranteed to create some lifelong memories. Why not treat your kids to one last day out before the school bell rings for the autumn term? We are open this Bank Holiday Monday, so come and say hello to our big zoo animals and enjoy everything we have to offer here at Noah’s Ark…
But what exactly do we offer? Well, first of all, we have to mention our main attraction: our amazing, big zoo animals. We see elephants, lions and tigers in pictures and on TV nature programmes all the time – but nothing beats that feeling of being up-close to these magical creatures, seeing them go about their day-to-day activities before our very eyes. Swing by Elephant Eden – described as a five-star luxury resort for elephants! Set over a staggering 20 acres, it is home to our lovely elephants Janu and M’Changa. With a state-of-the-art barn, swimming pool, hot and cold showers and central heating for when the temperature drops, you may just want to move in yourselves!
Our long-necked friends Gerald, Genevieve, George and Geoffrey are also amazing creatures to see in the flesh. When they are in their house, visitors can walk up the steps to the viewing station and be within touching distance of the giraffes – and there are guaranteed to be plenty of picture-perfect moments along the way! With the unpredictable British weather at the moment, there’s every chance it could take a turn for the worse. If it does, fear not!
Noah’s Ark is an all-weather destination, and there are plenty of places to take respite from the rain. Little ones will love our indoor adventure play zones (which are now heated to keep them extra toasty). Tiny tots will have fun in the Jungle Den, complete with ball pits, soft games, ball blower and much more!
There’s lots to do for older children too - they can grab a mat and race down the three wavy, rainbow-coloured slides, or take a trip down the daring drop slide. There are also indoor trampolines, climbing frames and rope bridges so they can play to their hearts’ content. When it comes to feeding rumbling tums, our on-site café is the place to be.
We serve a range of nutritious and delicious lunches – locally-sourced where possible – as well as ice creams, snacks and a wide selection of drinks. Unlike some other zoos or day-trip destinations, Noah’s Ark Zoo Farm offers completely free car parking to all visitors, meaning you can park all day and not have to pay a penny. What’s not to love about Noah’s Ark? Pay us a visit and you’ll soon see what all the fuss is about!
What’s more, if you book online you will receive a 5% discount, just for booking ahead of time. Wave goodbye to the summer in style at Noah’s Ark Zoo Farm…
