Over 80 acres house over 2000 creatures here at Paignton Zoo. From the tiny Hazel Dormouse right up to the tallest Giraffes there is a huge selection to see in 6 different habitat zones. Explore the Savannah, Desert, Wooded Forest, Wetland and Tropical Forest zones. The sixth is called the Primley zone, named after the founder, you can discover their troop of baboons, giant tortoises, crocodiles and owls as well as plants from many different countries including the prehistoric ginkgo plant.
Many animals in the zoo are endangered so Paignton works with a worldwide network of zoos to care and breed rare species. Animals like the Sulawesi crested macaque, the western lowland gorilla and the black rhino are here for a reason.
Paington Zoo is twinned with Living Coasts in Torquay. So if you wish to visit both fabulous attractions during your stay with us you can buy 1 ticket for both and save up to 20%!
