Go see the UK's only giant pandas. They have travelled all the way from China to take up residence at the zoo on a 10-year loan. People are flocking there just to see these guys; viewing is on a ticketed system (no additional fee) so make sure you get your ticket before you arrive.
Make sure you go and meet the zoo's most famous penguin, Sir Nils Olav, currently a Guard-in-Chief in the Norwegian Guard and highly regarded by both Norway and the people of Scotland.
Take a trip down the Budongo Trail, a fun environment in which to observe the zoo’s chimpanzees, with viewing galleries, plasma screens, interactive displays, murals and plant-life.
Catch an Animal Antics Show – find out the times of feeding and shows for specific animals when you arrive at the zoo.
Check out the events calendar for an up-to-date overview of special events taking place at the zoo.
Treat the kids to a Keeper Experience to learn more about the zoo behind-the-scenes whilst finding out more about conservation and the environment.
