Zoo’s festive fun

Whipsnade Zoo has been transformed into a winter wonderland packed full of Christmas fun.

Interactive Elves’ Workshops will give children the chance to prepare tasty treats for the chimps, as well as bird feeders to take home.

Down at the Chimp-nasium, keepers will be giving the zoo’s cheeky chimps their specially-prepared presents to unwrap and devour, encouraging their natural behaviours such as foraging for food.

It’s not just the chimps who will be celebrating Christmas; Whipsnade’s herd of reindeers will be too. Learn more about Santa’s favourite little helpers, including how they’ve adapted to life in the cold, at Reindeer Rumble – an afternoon get together at their paddock.

And of course, no Christmas would be complete without a visit from Santa himself. Find out more about dates and prices at www.zsl.org.
