Kifaru Reserve

Our zoo is a truly special day out.

When you visit us, you’ll see many animals you’re unlikely to find anywhere else. Some are in danger of becoming extinct, and we look after them in purpose-built, award-winning enclosures, designed to give them the best living conditions.

Snooze at our zoo

You can also stay on site in our zoo-themed lodges and safari tents on our five star holiday park right next door – you may even glimpse a rhino from your accommodation or hear our lions roar at night!

Who’s here?

At Folly Farm zoo, you’ll see the only giraffes in Wales, and can look them straight in the eye from the Giraffe Heights walkway. And we’re one of only seven zoos in the UK that cares for the critically endangered Eastern black rhino. You can also see penguins, lions, zebras, Bactrian camels, bongos, lemurs, meerkats, tapirs, Barbary macaques, squirrel monkeys…the list goes on!

You’ll see our aviaries, where all sorts of unusual birds live. You might be familiar with some of them – like parrots, owls, cranes, herons and pelicans. But what about a turaco or an inca tern? Or a bleeding heart dove? Sound exotic? Wait till you see them! And at Tropical Trails, you can get a really close look at snakes and tortoises, crocodiles, sloths and fruit bats.

You’ll be literally inches away from all these amazing creatures. You can even feed some of them.

Conservation at the zoo

We’re passionate about preventing any animal from becoming extinct. So we take part in breeding programmes and raise money to help protect animals in the wild. We’re proud to be members of the British and Irish Association of Zoos and Aquariums (BIAZA) and the European Association of Zoos and Aquaria (EAZA). Our membership means we share knowledge with leading zoos across the UK and Europe, and we learn from them too.

Special visits for schools

School visits to our Welsh zoo are a great way to learn about all kinds of animals – and to have fun.
