Upcoming Events

Roar n' Snore: Night at the Zoo - Saturday 17 August 2019

A night at the Zoo like no other. This year we’re hosting two extravagant Roar n’ Snore events, filled with night trails, live music and entertainment on an outdoor cinema.

Imagine falling asleep under the stars in the depths of Dartmoor, away from civilisation for the evening, surrounded by exotic animals. Wake up to the sound of Jasiri the Lion roaring.

Roar & Snore is the best way to see animals after hours, and have the zoo all to yourself.

Tickets include 2 day admission, which means you can make the most out of your experience, arrive before 2pm to witness all the morning and afternoon live feeds and talks.
