Animals and Nature


Noah’s Ark Zoo Farm

Clevedon Road, Wraxall, BS48 1PG


Noah’s Ark Zoo Farm is the home of the big zoo animals including African Elephants, White Rhinos, Giraffes, Lions, Giant Anteater and Spectacled Bears. You’ll be amazed at the variety of nature you’ll see with over 100 species of animals, set in 100 acres of Somerset countryside.  We are now open 7 days a week.
To protect our visitors, staff and animals, we have made some changes in line with Government guidance to assist with social distancing, which are listed in full on our website.  Following Step 3 guidance, we are allowing groups of up to 30 people outside with social distancing between household bubbles and groups of up to 6 or 2 households in indoor areas, again with social distancing between households.
  • Timed entry tickets must be purchased online prior to your visit
  • Limited visitors’ numbers on site to assist with social distancing
  • Additional toilets and handwashing stations
  • Card payment is preferred at our food kiosks and shop
  • Our indoor play facilities are not currently open
  • We have additional covered outdoor areas
  • Most Indoor animal enclosures are open, except the Giraffe house which remains closed
  • We have indoor picnic areas located near the café and by the Rainbow Cafe
Interactive Keeper Talks
We are pleased that we can now offer a reduced programme of keeper talks.  Please see our website for more details.

Outdoor Play Areas
Our outdoor play areas are open to the public.  Social distancing measures have been put in place together with additional cleaning and hand sanitizing stations. This includes:
  • Wallaby Hill play zone
  • Zip Wire
  • Termite Mound play zone
  • Elephant Slide
  • Ark for All inclusive Play
  • Outdoor trampolines
  • Sand Pit
We are unable to open our Welly Splash at this time. 

Indoor Play
Our indoor play areas remain closed.  This will be reviewed when guidance for Step 4 is released.
Food and Catering
Our award-winning café will still be serving scrumptious treats through a reduced menu and take-away only service.  In addition to the Food Barn, there are kiosks around the site that are open at weekends and peak periods for hot drinks, snacks and ice creams.
Please see our new menu online and for food allergens.
If you would like to pack a picnic, that’s fine but we ask you to bring this into the zoo when you enter to avoid re-entering the zoo.  Picnic tables will be available throughout the site.

Keeper Experiences & Encounters
Following government guidance, we are unable to deliver any Keeper Experiences or Animal Encounters.  We are currently not selling any new animal experiences.

We have embarked on a long-term accessibility program, ‘Ark For All’. The first completed phase was opened by Andy Lewis, MBE, Paralympian. These facilities include a Changing Places toilet, complete with hoist and changing bed (access with a Radar Key), accessible play equipment including a wheelchair accessible roundabout, basket swings and child-friendly accessible animal signs. We offer complimentary hire of wheelchairs and mobility scooters can be hired for a small cost. Please read our Access Guide on our website or call our friendly team.
Tractor rides and Birthday Parties
We are currently unable to offer tractor rides or birthday parties at this time.
We would like to thank all our supporters of the Zoo at this time and ask all our guests to take care to follow the additional signage, observe social distancing and the wearing of face coverings in enclosed public areas.
