What animals are in Whipsnade Zoo?

Set in over 600 acres of the beautiful Chiltern Hills countryside, Whipsnade Zoo is an escape from the urban jungle. With over 11,000 amazing animals to discover, including rhinos, tigers, giraffes and elephants, there are loads of reasons to be wild about Whipsnade Zoo.

With so much space to roam, you’ll want a full day out to enjoy the lions, tigers, rhinos, elephants, zebra, hippos and giraffes out and about in their large outdoor enclosures, not to mention the moose, European bison and lynx that were once commonplace in Britain.

Set amidst rolling paddocks, our Asian elephants enjoy a custom-designed Centre for Elephant Care. Keep your eyes peeled for the newest member of the elephant herd, a baby girl born in August 2022.

Don’t miss the rockhopper and African black-footed residents of the penguin pool, with its epic views from the high Chiltern Downs over the surrounding countryside!

Discover new depths as you delve deeper into the fascinating underwater worlds of Whipsnade Zoo’s Aquarium, then bask in the tropical temperatures of the Butterfly House surrounded by hundreds of colourful butterflies.
