Sun Bears

Please keep an eye out for signage at the 'Bears of the Rising Sun' enclosure for details of our daily sun bear encounters.

Please note that you will need to visit more than once to see every single event. We cannot guarantee which animals you will see. Some cannot be seen at all times in order to let them live as naturally as possible. Details are accurate at time of posting online, but subject to change. The directors reserve the right to close all or parts of the zoo as necessary. Displays or rides can be temporarily withdrawn without notice due to animal sickness or other unforeseen circumstances. Refunds cannot be given under these circumstances.
