Twycross Zoo is an 80 acre walk-through zoo with over 900 animals and nearly 150 species to see in the flesh.
The animals on display include some of the world’s most endangered species and are exhibited amidst landscaped gardens. Areas include a Sri Lankan themed walkway past the Asian elephants enclosure, a lemur walk-through, owl aviaries, a penguin lagoon, a spider monkey forest, giant tortoises, Zoo Babies, a camel paddock, snow leopards and all of the great apes (gorillas, orang-utans, bonobos and chimpanzees).
The park has also developed it’s own 20000 sq metre wetland Nature Reserve created to allow native British wildlife species to thrive there. Take a wonder along the trail that winds through this area past the pools, ponds, grassland and trees so you can try to spot all the species that have made their home there.
There are outdoor and undercover picnic areas. A rainy day trail to take you through all the indoor enclosures and keeps you out of the wet. Daily animal talks and scheduled feeding times and outdoor children’s play areas.
