Wild Explorers is now open!

July 15, 2015

Wild Explorers is about exploration and the discovery of wild animals, focussing on the natural history and conservation of white rhinos, Grevy’s zebra and scimitar-horned oryx – three iconic species for which Marwell has special responsibility. 

The new £3.6m exhibit, which is five times bigger than any other at Marwell Zoo, is now open and we can’t wait for you to begin your adventure! 

Not only does Wild Explorers provide fantastic views of the animals from its boardwalk and spy in the grass cameras, it also reveals how Marwell’s Conservation Biologists study and conserve these incredible species in the African wilderness. 

Complete with a safari vehicle resting by the water hole, our boardwalk, discovery zone and Wildlife Rangers talk at 1pm aim to awaken your inner explorer as we guide you in how to identify animal tracks, decipher zebra behaviours and recognise individual animals. You can then test your skills on our quiz and see if you have what it takes to become a Wild Explorer! 

What’s more, families completing our Explorers Trail can enjoy additional activities and stamps at the new exhibit, helping them to complete their adventure around the zoo. Pick up a trail at our info cabin and once you’ve collected all the stamps you can claim a free sticker from the gift shop.
