Discover a variety of stunning, winged wildlife from the world's second largest continent with London Zoo's Bird Safari.

Opened in 2004, the Bird Safari replaced some of the old Stork and Ostrich House, part of which is still used today to house species from the habitat. The area was redesigned to create a larger space for the birds and to improve visitor experience, it's now an immersive walk-through, taking you into the birds' environment.

Bird Safari is home to a number of different species, including the scarlet ibis, Abdim stork, red-crested turaco, emerald dove, marbled teal and the Baer's pochard.
