At the bottom half of the zoo you will find our Edge of Africa section. Here you will find our cheetah’s, spotted hyena’s, mandrills, red river hogs, warthogs and other smaller African species.
We have had previous successful births with our Spotted hyena and hope to be able to help maintain the population of this species within the captive environment.
Our mandrill troop at Colchester Zoo have a very successful breeding record, with offspring born yearly.
We have a group of red river hogs here at Colchester Zoo. These wild species of pig are also known as bushpigs.
We have a successful breeding pair of cheetahs, which are part of a European breeding programme (EEP).
