How your experience supports Colchester Zoo

Although Colchester Zoo reopened in June and has been enjoying visitors back within the park since closure, the reduced visitor numbers, due to safety, during the summer months has not provided the required income to keep us going comfortably through the winter months. By purchasing an Animal Experience to take place during November and December 2020 you will be helping towards the zoo’s day to day running costs supporting animal needs like food, veterinary fees and staff cost.

Visitor and staff safety is paramount to us therefore all of our Animal Experiences have been made COVID-Secure so you can rest assured that you will have a safe and enjoyable experience.

Come along and enjoy a day at the zoo like no other for an unbeatable price whilst helping towards the Zoo’s survival this winter!
