Enjoy extended opening

Enjoy dusk at DZG as we extend our opening into the evening.

On Saturday, May 13 and Saturday, June 17 we’ll be remaining open until 8pm (with last entry 6.30pm) and visitors will be able to enjoy additional animals talks and feeds, Go Wild! shows and watch a birds of prey display.

Unwind in the castle courtyard and enjoy our on-site refreshments, ride our land train and chairlift, get up close to our Lemur Wood residents, stroll through Castle Creatures and feed pots of nectar to our cheeky lorikeets.

Zoo Manager, Matt Lewis, said: “This is a great opportunity for visitors to enjoy a few extra hours of fun at DZG and have more time to learn about the rarest animals in the world.

“Our late night opening also provides the chance for visitors to see some of our species who become more active during late afternoon, including our giant anteater, porcupines, tapirs and chimpanzees.”

We’re offering discounted admission for entry from 4pm, with adult tickets priced £8 and £4 per child, which need to be pre-booked.

Alternatively tickets are available on the day from 4pm priced £10 per adult and £5 per child.

Full-paying visitors already on site are also welcome to stay for the extra opening.
