If you’re crazy about camels, passionate about parrots or mad about meerkats, then the UK’s best loved Zoo is a must-see attraction. Featuring some of the world’s most incredible animals living in areas designed to simulate their natural habitat.
For guests, Flamingo Land’s beloved animal collection is sure to delight and amaze. See tigers from the frozen wastelands of Siberia, lions from Africa’s savannah and enjoy all the kids’ favourite farm animals from far closer to home. But remember, your trip isn’t complete without a visit to see the ﬂ amingos. However, the zoo’s passion for animals runs far deeper than many would expect. From supporting an integrated conservation, research and education project in the Udzungwa Forest, Tanzania, to managing native wildlife protection in collaboration with David Bellamy, Flamingo Land takes its responsibilities seriously. The endangered species you’ll see are all part of international breeding programmes, whilst others are involved in studies to ensure their long-term future in the wild.
For those who want to do more than simply spectate, Flamingo Land offers a range of ways to get involved. For guests with drive and enthusiasm to match their passion for animals, the ‘Be A Zoo Keeper’ experience provides the chance to step behind the scenes and discover what’s really involved. Alternatively, for those who’d prefer a more leisurely approach, the ‘Zoo Safari’ gives you dedicated access to an experienced keeper for a journey packed with insight and fascinating facts. Finally, ‘Lemur Lunch Break’ is guaranteed to delight all animal fans – when feeding time arrives, you’re sure to be the centre of attention!
Looking for a holiday that lets you relax and unwind whilst keeping you fully entertained? Then Flamingo Land is the ideal destination. With up to fifteen daytime shows and great nighttime entertainment regularly featuring international celebrity acts, you’re sure to discover a world packed with laughter, music and song.
The fun begins early every day with ideas for all the family. If you’d like to meet everyone’s favourite postman, simply head on down to the Plaza Bar. Direct from Greendale, Pat & Jess will be delighted to see you and are sure to bring a smile to your face.
Then, deep in the heart of the Lost Kingdom you’ll discover dramatic interactive action. Here the breathtaking acrobatic feats of the Bongo Warriors, as seen on Britain’s Got Talent, are guaranteed to thrill. Or, for those guests who prefer to marvel at the dexterity and skills of our animal friends, both the Bird and Sea Lion Shows are well worth a visit. So, take a trip to the heart of the Zoo and you’re sure to be amazed!
As the gates close at the end of every day, Flamingo Land turns into a private world for Resort guests. However, there’s still plenty to see and do before the day is over. If it’s a family pub you’re after, then the Coach House offers everything you’ll need, from a warm and friendly atmosphere to traditional hand- pulled Yorkshire bitter and delicious home-cooked feasts. Alternatively, for a fusion of Italian and American ﬂ avours, Metropolis Bar & Grill is always sure to delight, or maybe the thought of Jolly Sailor’s unbeatable eat-all-you-like pizza, pasta and salad bar will be too tempting to resist.
