At Paignton Zoo you will find over 2,500 animals spread across 80 acres of natural habitat.
As you adventure around the Zoo you will journey through six different habitat zones - from the Savannah to the Wetlands.
See our majestic giraffes tower over ostriches, black rhinos and cheetahs in the Savannah. Visit the birds soaking up the heat in the dry plains of the desert and definitely don't miss our tigers, lions, gibbons, gorillas and orang utans swinging around in the wooded forest.
See pelicans, ducks, flamingos and cranes in the sanctuary of our Wetland; while many geckos, snakes and lizards can be found in the humid and steamy Tropical Forest.
Our final habitat is our Primley zone, named after the home of the Zoo’s founder. In Primley you can discover our troop of baboons, giant tortoises, crocodiles and owls as well as plants from many different countries including the prehistoric ginkgo plant.
Many of our animals are endangered and as one of the UK’s top zoos it is our mission to help preserve our global wildlife heritage and protect animals from extinction.
We’re part of a worldwide network of zoos which cares for and breeds rare species thanks to visitors who help fund the work. Animals like the Sulawesi crested macaque, the western lowland gorilla and the black rhino are here for a reason.
