From Saturday 28th March visitors to the Isle of Wight Zoo will be able to participate in a range of family friendly outdoor activities courtesy of Island-based Adventure Activities Isle of Wight.

Both organizations share a fierce passion for the natural world and, together, they have pledged to champion everything that the great outdoors has to offer. A trip to the zoo will now no longer just be about experiencing 'wildlife’ it will also be about learning how to survive the wild life while having fun rediscovering what it is to be human in the real world.

Those brave enough to ascend to the top of the newly installed 30ft climbing wall will be rewarded with a unique view of Casper and Frosty, the zoos’ white lions – and no doubt the sight of clothed primates scrambling up a rock face will be rather stimulating for the lions too! For the more terrestrially orientated adventurer, an archery range will be erected close by for anyone wanting to challenge their hand-eye coordination. The goats at Zoolittle Farm are set to be entertained by observing the circus skills training in action while the meerkat mob will supervise bush-skills and nature games stationed at Suricata Lodge.

Kids can also have fun with our great Easter quiz , just ask at reception for a quiz sheet when you arrive .

Join our friendly and knowledgeable tour guides on their informative" animals are amazing daily tours " that run throughout the day , a great way to learn about the different species here at the zoo and the zoo's vital Conservation supportive work both here in the UK and in situ in India and Madagascar .

Don't forget you can also enjoy our daily animal encounters too !! with our daily wallaby and Meerkat encounters , tickets for these experiences are available on the day from our newly refurbished Zoo shop .

A very warm welcome awaits you at the Isle of Wight Zoo this Easter
