February Half-term holiday activities

We have lots of half term fun for the kids here at Dartmoor Zoo going on from Saturday 16th to Sunday 24th February.
There are going to be daily scavenger hunts with edible prizes!
Each day we will be holding a raffle to win a same day animal encounter. This could be Chincha our jaguar or maybe the wolves – come along and find out!


On weekends 16th and 17th February (and 9th and 10th) the children will be able to make a Valentines Day card for their favourite animal and post in in our in-house letter box.

Or on 14th February, say “I do” at the Zoo.


Cinema – Friday 22nd February 16:30-18:30

What better way to end your day visiting Dartmoor Zoo that gathering together for a movie. As part of Dartmoor Zoo’s ‘Our world is their world’ theme for 2019 we thought we’d kick things off this February half term with the Disney/Pixar Classic ‘Wall.E’

Cinema entry in our main restaurant on Friday 22nd February is included with normal Zoo admission for that day.
