Coronavirus: Flamingo Land zoo reopens

The doors to Flamingo Land have reopened

  • Flamingo Land has reopened its zoo.
  • It's after the government eased the restrictions this week.
  • Due to the ongoing situation, certain restrictions will be in place - meaning visitors will not be allowed to access the aquarium, reptile area or play areas.  

After 3 months of lockdown, Flamingo Land has reopened its award-winning zoo.  

The government has now eased the restrictions on visiting zoos and once again they can welcome guests to their park.

With immediate effect, the zoo is open along with daily sea lion shows and walkthrough animal areas.

Due to the ongoing restrictions, visitors are unfortunately unable to open the aquarium, reptile area or play areas.

Park owner Gordon Gibb said:

“During the lockdown our focus has been on looking after and protecting our animal collection. We care for some of the most threatened animals on the planet and their welfare is our priority. I am pleased that we are now able to welcome guests back and share our beloved animal collection with them”.  

During the lockdown Flamingo Land keepers have successfully mixed their two white rhinos with three Northern cheetahs, the first time a zoo has managed this in the UK.  

Mr Gibb concluded:

“We cannot wait for everyone to visit our cheetah reserve and see the cheetahs and the rhinos mixed together.  This is a UK first and an incredible sight to see two species which co-exist in the wild living together here at Flamingo Land."
