Our Review

We love animals and nature. A good appreciation of nature always helps if you like the outdoors 😉

We’ve also visited a fair few zoos.

I’m glad that zoos these days focus on conservation and aren’t just about showing off animals.

Fortunately, Chester Zoo is one of those zoos where conservation is at the heart of what it does.

The zoo is quite large. So large that it even has a monorail to help you get from one side to the other (if you have not visited Chester Zoo in a while, the monorail is no longer free).

One of the things you’ll notice as soon as you enter the zoo is the huge elephant enclosure.

If you are lucky you might see a baby elephant.

You can also go around to see where the elephants sleep at night, and if you visit when the keepers are getting the elephants’ food ready, you’ll see the huge pile of grub an elephant gets through in one meal.

Throughout the zoo, you’ll come across a wide range of animals, from big cats to fish, and even giant reptiles.

..and of course, there’s a petting zoo too with animals that are a little tamer.

However, another big part of the zoo is its primates.

A visit to the chimp house to watch their antics is a must. It is eerie how human-like they can be.

But if you are impressed with the chimps and other primates, you have to visit the king of the primates: the giant orang-utans.
