Africa comes to Bristol!

10 Jul 2019

To celebrate World Lion Day, Noah’s Ark Zoo Farm is hosting their African Carnival. 

On Saturday 10th August 2019, a pride of African dancers will be making their way through NAfrican-20Carnival-202.jpgoah’s Ark Zoo Farm. The carnival will feature acrobats, African dancers, drummers and a range of giant African carnival animals. The performance has been created by Unika Dance Events a London based, bespoke dance company. 

The Zoo is raising money for Safina Lion Conservation Trust. Noah’s Ark is home to four Lions, Masai and Arusha, and their cubs, Kojo and Tau, who will no doubt, be the stars of the day. Visitors can learn about the Lions and Tigers in a special Big Cat Keeper talk at 1.30pm. 

The parades will be at 12:30pm,1:30pm and 2:30pm and there will be a dance and drumming demonstration at 3.30pm. Visitors are encouraged to join in with the parades and demonstration for no extra cost to the day.African-20Carnival-201.jpg

Ben Gregory, Carnivore Keeper at Noah’s Ark said “Our male lion, Masai, is the son of Safina, the namesake of the Safina Lion Conservation Trust, so this cause is close to our hearts here at Noah’s Ark Zoo Farm. We believe it is important that we raise awareness of lions, as they are vulnerable to extinction in the wild, and for us to fundraise for their conservation. What better way to do this than with an exciting African Carnival that our visitors can enjoy.”
