Around the world in 37 Days

Summer 2018 at the ark!

Noah's Ark Zoo Farm is home to a diverse range of species that are native to the far corners of the Earth. To celebrate this we’re taking a trip around the continents during the summer holidays.

From deep down under to farthest Russia, you'll experience it all this Summer in North Somerset.

Grab a trail map and you can be entered into a chance to win a Zoo Keeper Experience!
