Marwell Zoo

Click to enlarge this slide

Marwell’s 140-acre park is home to an incredible range of exotic and endangered species, in beautiful, landscaped surroundings. Just by visiting Marwell Zoo (owned and operated by conservation charity, Marwell Wildlife) you’ll be making a big contribution to their projects to conserve species and habitats, both here in Hampshire and around the world. For those wildlife lovers, Marwell’s star animals include – White rhino, Amur leopards, Amur tigers, cheetahs, Humboldt penguins, Rothschild giraffes and even snow leopards (just to name a few!)

Marwell’s biggest ever exhibit, the new ‘Energy for Life’ Tropical House is now open to the public. Hot on the heels of Wild Explorers, this innovative and sustainable exhibit marks the second phase of a £17million investment programme at Marwell over the next decade, creating improved habitats for animals and more immersive experiences for guests. Spanning two levels with fantastic vantage points, guests can experience face-to-face encounters with a diversity of wildlife and exotic plants in a tropical climate, while learning about the flow of energy through life. Listen to the calls of the yellow-throated frogs below a cascading waterfall, admire Linné’s two-toed sloth, Rica, in the lush forest canopy and spot the group of pygmy marmosets exploring their own island above the exhibit’s impressive 70,000-litre aquarium, which is home to 2,500 fish! 

Explore Marwell Zoo all year round (except Christmas Day and Boxing Day). The Zoo is open at 10am every day and last entry is 90 minutes before they close.
