Birmingham Zoo – A Great Place For A Family Day Out

The Birmingham Zoo is home to as many as 800 animals from almost 200 species and these include some of the most endangered animals from across the world’s six continents. It is indeed a great place for any family to visit and kids are sure to have a great time here. >

The main zoo has an alligator swamp with massive crocodiles and alligators from different continents as well as aviaries where colourful birds from across the world can be seen. Camel rides are present only during the spring summer seasons, while there is also a cassowary exhibit and a flamingo lagoon with hundreds of brightly coloured birds. The Kangaroo Kountry features these popular marsupials and makes anyone feel as if they are visiting Australia.

The Lorikeet Interactive Feeding and Observation Aviary is indeed a major attraction for both the young and the old and so is Macaw Plaza. The predator building and the Predator Zone are areas where one can get a feel of how life in the jungle is. The primate building is also a common favourite, while the reptile building is for those who have a fascination of snakes! Another main attraction is the sea lion splash show which is a treat for young and old alike. Secretary Birds, the Tortoise Yard with tortoises of diverse sizes, Waterfowl Ponds and the Wildlife Stage are some of the other key highlights here.

Amongst the diverse facilities and activities here is the Carousel which is sure to be a treat for the kids. For anyone looking for memorabilia there is a gift shop to browse through, while one can quench hunger pangs at the Kudzoo Caf with family and friends during a day at the zoo. Visitors will also enjoy such activities as the Pelican Feeding and the Birmingham Zoo Express and Red Diamond Express trains.
