What animals will I see in London Zoo's Animal Adventure?

Animal Adventure gives children the chance to come face-to-face with amazing animals, including meerkats, porcupines, pigs, coatis, alpacas, llamas and goats. 

Specially designed low barriers mean young animal fans feel like they’re right in the heart of the action, watching the animals behave just as they would in the wild, and there’ll be plenty of opportunities to meet ZSL’s expert keepers and get the inside story on their work.

What play equipment can I use in Animal Adventure?

Animal Adventure is the ultimate zoo experience for young pups! Capturing little ones’ imaginations, a child-sized hot air balloon will ‘transport’ them to animal kingdoms around the world. Kids can follow in Darwin’s daring footsteps - navigating swinging bridges, slides and ladders aboard HMS Beagle, and our Splash Zone is the perfect place to cool off in on a sunny day. 

Our Splash Zone area may be closed without prior notice on the day of your visit. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Adults are well-catered for while little ones enjoy explore – Animal Adventure includes a catering kiosk offering hot drinks, snacks and tempting extras so you can be relaxed and refuelled, ready for exploring the rest of the Zoo.

There are also toilets and a Changing Places facility.
