Islands at Chester Zoo

Embark on a wildlife expedition in the amazing tropical environments of six South East Asian islands at Chester Zoo.

Islands at Chester Zoo lets ordinary people make extraordinary discoveries. It recreates the amazing tropical environments of six South East Asian islands, and are there to explore. Visitors will feel more like a group of intrepid explorers than a family visiting the zoo; and afterwards guests are invited to tell the team at Chester Zoo about what they discovered, just like real conservationists.

Highlights of the expedition will include looking for the Sumatran tiger tracks, a visit to the stunning Bali starling in Nusa Penida and a tree top encounter with an orangutan. Guests can also take the Lazy River Boat Trip around all six Islands to discover more of the precious wildlife found there.

The perfect way to turn dad in to David Attenborough.

Entry to Islands is included in your zoo ticket.
