Elephant farewell celebrations

Enjoy a host of elephant-tastic activities to mark the departure of our Asian elephants, Dhunja and Yhetto, who are setting off for pastures new at Burger’s Zoo in Arnhem, Netherlands.

Come along for trunk-loads of fun and elephant-themed activities to bid farewell to these iconic mammals including:

  • feeding-time viewings
  • a screening of 'The Zoo' movie in the Zoo café
  • talks and stories about all our elephants during their 90 years at Belfast Zoo
  • elephant craft activities
  • a visit to wish the elephants goodbye
  • photo souvenir opportunities
  • memento booklets at the gift shop
  • a chance to fill the elephants’ packing trunks with postcards full of your memories and well wishes.
