With three thousand animals, five different habitats and acres of activities you're in for a great day out at Paignton Zoo in Devon, but what will you tackle first? Do you cross hair-raising Crocodile Swamp, home to the world's largest croc species? Get close to our closest cousins at Monkey Heights or mix with the kangaroos hopping around the hills.

Home to thousands of amazing animals and plants you can walk through a world of wonder - visit the desert, cross the savannah, explore the forest and trek through the tropics. Use your senses to discover the wild world: look around, listen out - you'll even need your sense of smell! Find out about conservation and the world's endangered species.

Paignton Zoo is a great day out for everyone. As well as the thousands of animals, there's a miniature train ride, a wobbly jungle bridge in Lemur Wood, indoor and outdoor play areas, keeper talks and feeding times, places to eat and places to sit - all packed into 80 acres of natural habitat.

A whole day of fun for family and friends!
