Noah’s Ark Zoo Farm is the home of the big zoo animals including African Elephants, White Rhino, Giraffes, Lions, Tigers 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.


Interactive Keeper Talks

Find out about your favourite animals in our free interactive keeper talks every 30 minutes throughout the day. Find out about our Zebras, Giraffes and meet our Meerkat mob.  Watch in awe as our birds of prey swoop over your heads in our aerial displays, witness the majestic big cats feeding or get the keeper insights into our Elephant bachelor group.  Our daily animal show is a must see, where our presenters talk about our domestic animals and why we keep them at the farm.

Our animal handling sessions, twice daily, gives you the chance to get up close with some of fluffy favourite animals.
