Venture to tantalising tropical islands in the heart of Cheshire thanks to one of Europe’s most innovative exhibits at the UK’s most popular zoo.
Chester Zoo still thrives on the creative spirit of its founder George Mottershead - a famous pioneer of no-bars zoos who back in 1931 preferred to use ditches and moats to separate the animals. Today, the zoo remains at the forefront of innovative conservation, shown to the full with its new £40m stunning recreation of tropical environments depicting South East Asian islands of Panay, Papua, Sumba, Sulawesi, Bali and Sumatra.
Conservation comes to life as you enjoy an expedition over bridges and a journey on water that links the islands in what is one of the most ambitious zoo developments in Europe. Visitors to Chester Zoo in the North of England can also see over 12,500 animals and 400 different species. The Zoo is just 15 minutes' drive from Chester and 3 hours 45 minutes from London.
