Over two weekends in December, visitors will notice a touch of magic in the air at Belfast Zoo as they get into the festive spirit for the season.
On Saturday 10 and Sunday 11 December, and Saturday 17 and Sunday 18 December, visitors can come to enjoy Belfast Zoo's festive feeding times as Santa will be treating the animals to Christmas gifts such as wrapped boxes, crackers and stockings. Santa will be feeding the animals at selected dates and times (schedule to be confirmed).
Start your visit with a festive family photo at their photography base camp.
Get crafty at the café and create some exciting enrichment items for the animals at one of Belfast Zoo's craft tables.
Children can then explore their beautiful 55-acre site by taking part in a Christmas Trail and be in with the chance of winning a ‘zooper’ goodie bag.
Make sure to swing by the gorilla house and see if you can spot Kofi, a baby Western lowland gorilla who celebrated his first birthday in October.
The Zoo are open from 10am to 4pm with last admission at 2.30pm. They recommend booking online.
Normal admission rates apply.
