Spend an unforgettable day out at Edinburgh Zoo, home of the Royal Zoological Society of Scotland (RZSS) and over 2,500 incredible animals from around the world. First, plan how you'll explore over 82 acres of the wooded hillside of the zoo. You'll learn about the challenges facing wildlife, and discover how our wildlife conservation charity harnesses the unique power of the RZSS family to save animals from extinction. Next, get closer than ever to animals including Sumatran tigers, three different species of penguins and cheeky meerkats. Immerse yourself in the dinosaur walk-through exhibition and see prehistoric beasts come to life around you against the backdrop of Scotland’s capital.
