Taking place all day today from 10am-3.30pm (Friday 15 May), guests will be treated to a virtual tour of some of the zoo’s most interesting animals, allowing you to experience the joys of a day out right from the comfort of your couch.

The live sessions are new for the zoo and will take place on their Facebook page while the premises are closed for the public – covering family favourite animals that will keep both kids and adults entertained throughout the day. The tour will take viewers to see cheetahs and tropical birds, before getting a little more exotic with orangutans and warty pigs.
