Discover iconic animals when you step Into Africa at London Zoo. Get closer to some of Africa's most unusual species like the giraffes, zebras, pygmy hippos, wild dogs and more!
Laze around with our big cats
There's nothing our big cats love more than a good snooze, especially when the sun in shining. Pop by Land of the Lions and Tiger Territory to spot these incredible species lazing in the sun on their viewing platforms.
Move through Madagascar
Get closer to the action than ever before with the In with the Lemurs walk-through, taking you on a journey through the Madagascan shrub forest. Renowned sun-worshippers, the lemurs love nothing more than an afternoon spent sunbathing. With this in mind the Zoo’s dedicated architects carefully mapped the path of the sunlight in the lemurs' habitat to ensure their basking platforms are purposefully located to maximise lounging time.
