About ZSL Whipsnade Zoo:

ZSL London ZooExperience a truly memorable day out at the UK’s biggest zoo. ZSL Whipsnade Zoo is home to some 3,000 animals and set in 600 acres of lush countryside overlooking the beautiful Chiltern Downs, near Dunstable, Bedfordshire.

It is one of two zoos – the other being ZSL London Zoo located in Regent’s Park, London – owned by the Zoological Society of London (ZSL), a charity devoted to the worldwide conservation of animals and their habitats.

There is always so much to do at ZSL Whipsnade Zoo. From discovering what a lemur eats for breakfast to getting to know the Chimp troupe, the list daily events, feeds and demonstrations will help you to make the most of your day.

One not to be missed highlight is the Zoo’s newly refurbished elephant experience. Pay a visit to our baby Asian elephant Elizabeth and the rest of our herd, who have just moved into their new home; a luxurious new barn set amidst 20-acres of rolling paddocks.

Visitors to the Centre for Elephant Care will be able to witness from a balconied viewing platform the strong bond among the herd as they socialise together and also get a unique insight into the daily attention lavished on the pampered pachyderms by their zookeepers.
