Set over 82 acres of sloping parkland, RZSS Edinburgh Zoo is home to over 1,000 rare and endangered animals. We want our visitors to have an unforgettable day out, so please browse the pages below in order to make the most of your visit.
If you would like to see the giant pandas, please note that entry is time-ticketed and spaces are limited. We would advise booking in advance to avoid disappointment.
Following the Scottish Government’s announcement of an Avian Influenza Prevention Zone in Scotland on 6 December 2016, RZSS has taken various precautions in line with Scottish Government recommendations. This prevention zone has now been extended until 30 April 2017.
While restrictions are still in place, the guidance has been amended from 1 March 2017 and in line with this we are planning the following:
Penguins Rock will re-open and there will be disinfectant foot mats in place for visitors
Penguin Parade will remain suspended until all restrictions are lifted
Brilliant Birds will remain closed until all restrictions are lifted. The front hall exhibiting fish, leaf-cutter ants and amphibians will remain open.
Pelican walkthrough will re-open with disinfectant foot mats in place at entry/exit gates.
Animal welfare is our number one concern at Edinburgh Zoo and we will always take precautions to minimise risk to our animals, in line with best available Scottish Government and DEFRA advice. Keep an eye on our website for further updates as the situation is subject to change.Book Tickets
