Explore the wonders of the natural world at Marwell Zoo, near Winchester, and play a big part in helping to save them. From ring-tailed lemurs to majestic giraffes, and curious meerkats to stunning snow leopards, the 140-acre park is home to an incredible range of exotic and endangered species.
A host of new arrivals are in residence at any time – keep an eye out for their recent births including Amur tiger triplets, Amur leopard cubs and a pygmy hippo calf.
Spend time with Marwell’s playful primates at ‘Lemur Loop’, a new walkthrough exhibit for summer 2017. Explore the environment of four different species of lemur who will be joined in their home by a new species for Marwell - green peafowl. With a beautiful landscaped setting, both indoors and out, the new lemur exhibit promises a truly immersive experience. What’s more, the zoo’s knowledgeable staff will be on hand to help guests learn all about these wonderful animals.
What’s more, hot on the heels of Wild Explorers, work has now started on a new Tropical House – opening 2018. This marks the second phase of a £17m investment programme for the zoo over the next 8-10 years, creating improved habitats for animals and more immersive experiences for our guests. The £7.8m exhibit will be the largest ever built at Marwell, and will be home to an array of new, colourful and charismatic mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish and insects, and will be heated by an anaerobic digester, powered by the animals’ waste.
Visitors can enjoy a range of daily animal talks and feeds including curious coatis, marvellous meerkats and fabulous Humboldt penguins. Plus, take part in Marwell’s popular Explorers Trail collecting stamps of your favourite animals for a free sticker! With five adventure playgrounds, a FREE tractor train, rail train and an indoor picnic area, there’s plenty to occupy your little ones whilst you relax and soak up the surroundings.
