About the event

Your kids will love stepping into the role of a vet at the ZSL London Zoo Animal Hospital this half-term, with a series of interactive family events to give animal lovers a glimpse into the world of a vet. Learn about what the zoo's vets, nurses and zookeepers do to keep different animals fed and happy on a daily basis. You'll help examine, X-ray and perform treatments on toys before heading off for more talks and fun-packed activities around the zoo.


Not only does the zoo have amazing pavilions of animals it also has daily events, such as In With The Lemurs Live taking you on a journey to Madagascar and Penguin Beach Live where you can watch the penguins as they dive, jump and swim!


Don't forget to visit the new exhibition Land of the Lions to discover a breath-taking sensory experience. Step inside the crumbling ruin of an amphitheatre-style Lion Temple in Sasan Gir India with only fine wires and a few metres separating you from the beautiful big cats and learn about the importance of conserving these endangered animals by helping the forest rangers with a 'lion-emergency.'


Visit the zoo today to become informed, inspired and excited about wildlife!
