Your visit

With over 500 animals, more than 110 species, and 55 acres to explore, find everything you need to have a ‘zooper’ visit to Belfast Zoo.

Please read our Coronavirus update page for all visitor information before booking. For more information, please email or call the zoo office on 028 9077 6277.

We are carrying out renovations to the old tiger house. This will allow our Barbary lions to move to a new purpose-built habitat early next year. During this work part of the Lion Walk pathway outside number 39 on our map will be closed, and there may be more vehicles onsite than normal. Essential maintenance is ongoing at the Elephant and Giraffe house and this may result in the giraffes and/or elephants being off show at some points.

We aim to complete the work with minimal disruption and apologise for any inconvenience.
