9th July - WE BOUGHT A ZOO Day

It's Dartmoor Zoo's birthday and we're celebrating with a day based on the film that sprung from CEO Benjamin Mee's book, We Bought A Zoo! There will be special tours and an outdoor showing of the film. Keep looking here for more information and details on how to book tickets for the film!

Daily Talks and Feeds

We have a wide range of fascinating talks about our animals here at the zoo. Come and watch them being fed and learn some interesting facts at the same time! Boards around the zoo will let you know what's on, and may change. We also have exciting activities and trails so please ask restaurant staff for one of these!
