Look forward to an outdoor animal adventure at Bristol Zoo Project, formerly Wild Place Project, on the outskirts of the city. Spot exotic species from around the world. Expect to see a wide variety of different animals, from zebras, giraffes and cheetahs to meerkats, lemurs and even cute zoo babies!
So enjoy a day out and immerse yourself in nature as you explore 50 beautiful acres including woodlands, gardens and Tower Meadow. Whatever the season, or weather, you will find plenty of fun things to do. Remember your wellies for jumping in any puddles!
One of the highlights is sure to be the immersive experience of award-winning Bear Wood, where bears and wolves share the same stretch of woodland; it is the first time that wolves and bears have lived together in British woodland for thousands of years. Discover this 7.5-acre habitat from raised walkways with panoramic viewpoints and watch wolves, bears, wolverine and lynxes roaming beneath you.
Home to pigmy goats and five species of mischievous lemur, conservation exhibit Discover Madagascar invites visitors to soak up the sights and sounds of a Madagascan village. Watch lemurs at close quarters as they walk right past you in the Lemur Walkthrough.
Meanwhile, journey to the wilds of Cameroon with the stunning Bénoué National Park exhibit offering the chance to see zebra, giraffes, red river hogs and eland in open grasslands. Head to Gelada Rocks to watch the troop of colourful gelada baboons. Nearby are the cheetahs, the fastest land mammal in the world.
