Wild Explorers

Be a Wild Explorer

Experience the African wilderness first hand at Marwell’s biggest exhibit to date – Wild Explorers.

Marwell is actively involved in conserving the three iconic species – white rhinos, scimitar-horned oryx and Grevy’s zebra – housed in this new exhibit, so its setting and design  reveal how we study and observe these species in the wild.

You’ll have a cracking view of the animals, both near and far, from the raised observation boardwalk. It’s the perfect spot for wildlife photography.

Step off the boardwalk and you’ll enter the discovery zone. Complete with a safari vehicle resting by the water hole, this zone aims to awaken your inner explorer.

What’s more, the exhibit offers covered areas for exhibitions & education sessions plus a themed play area for your children to practice their ranger skills!

Explorers Trail

Pick up your Explorers Trail from the Information Cabin and challenge your inner adventurer by collecting all eight stamps around the park. Don’t forget to enter in the prize draw and pick up your Wild Explorer sticker from the gift shop!

If you develop a bond with our Grevy’s zebra or white rhino then why not adopt one? You’ll be making a very welcome contribution to the care of our animals in the zoo (and helping to fund the tonnes of hay which our hoofstock consume each year).
