Our Kingdom of the Wild is one of Colchester Zoo’s most impressive exhibits, which houses a range of different African species. Here you will get to see reticulated giraffes, maneless zebras, white rhino, ostriches and greater kudu mixing together in the main paddock which we have recreated as a Savannah environment.
The inside area houses our pygmy hippos, a variety of reptiles, invertebrates and fish species. There is also a lovely view from the balcony overlooking our outdoor paddock. This is the perfect place to sit, relax and watch our African species.
If you exit through the ground floor of the building you will have a view alongside the paddock and be able to discover our African vulture aviary housing white backed vultures and Ruppells griffon vultures.
Please be aware that some interactive areas of Colchester Zoo and the Kingdom of the Wild building may close at least one hour prior to the zoo grounds.
