Our Encounter Timetable

Our daily encounters give you the chance to find out more about the animals at Colchester Zoo from their keepers!

Hear all about our many species, where they came from, how old they are and the importance of conservation.

You can also take part in some amazing up close experiences with the chance to hand feed our elephants and giraffes at FREE public feeding sessions!

Please be aware that our timetable is subject to change and that Colchester Zoo has the right to cancel all or some of the encounters if required.
