The zoo is now in the autumn season

As the autumn falls between the summer and winter, it is a busy time because the animals are transferred to their winter homes. All of the houses and enclosures are open, and animals can be viewed in most summer enclosures. Please note the African Safari is closed. However, the Lemur Restaurant  is open for meals, and the miniature train still chugs all the way from the meerkat house to the lion exhibit. Be sure not to miss the spooky Halloween week at the end of October, which coincides with schools’ half-term holidays in the Czech Republic.

To see what happens at other times of the year, click on the links in the top left corner of this page, or go directly to the spring, summer or winter seasons.
