October School Holidays

Majestic new male lions, cotton-top tamarin and spider monkey babies, and a recent extension to our Africa precinct are just some exciting reasons to visit Auckland Zoo these October school holidays!

Our Animal Experiences keepers will also be out and about with kune kune pigs, native and exotic birds, reptiles and bugs, plus there’ll be plenty of scheduled keeper talks to attend.

On arrival, kids can pick up our school holidays ‘Master Builders’ activity sheet to learn more about our amazing construction (animal) heroes. Your mission: Journey through the Zoo and collect all the master builder stamps!

Plus, don't miss out on all the action in Kidzone, where kids can play with giant blocks in Imagination Playground, and build their very own bulldozer to take home. Your little builder is sure to be entertained!

Check out the progress of the Zoo’s own awesome master build – a new South East Asian precinct due to open in early 2020.
