Join the Zoo-normous Easter egg Hunt this April – MoneyMagpie
Looking for somewhere fun to take the little ones this Easter break? Hop on down to London Zoo for an Easter egg hunt like you have never seen before!
Now is the time to put on your thinking caps and switch on detective mode. Families visiting the conservation zoo will be tasked with cracking secret codes. This will help to find the golden egg, hidden amongst the 36 acres of wildlife.
Between Saturday 1st and Sunday 16th April 2023, you can join the search for the zoo’s egg-laying animals in the heart of the capital city. From Humboldt penguins, ostriches and clown fish to beautiful and elegant flamingos, there are stunning and interesting species to see wherever you look.
Cunning wildlife-themed riddles and clues will be used to test the most devoted of animal lovers. So, get your friends and family involved for an egg-citing day out.
The zoo is home to Critically Endangered Sumatra tiger cubs Zac and Crispin. You’ll also see Galapagos tortoises Polly, Dolly and Priscila. You’ll find clues all over the establishment, seeing cheeky gibbon Jimmy along the way. The whole family will be inspired and gain a real passion for wildlife in this unique day out.
Children will be given special code-cards at each spot, which they can stamp. This will help them un-scramble the code and decipher the top-secret location of the Golden Egg Garden – home to a magnificent golden egg. Step aside, James Bond – your little ones will take on this mission.
After all the excitement of the Easter fun, you can check out new arrivals at the zoo, including Amara the pygmy hippo and baby sloth Nova. You can also listen to interesting talks from zookeepers and let your little monkeys burn off steam at the Animal Adventure play area.
Plus, the Zoo-normous egg hunt is free – meaning there are no additional costs to join in. You just need to pay zoo entry, and under 3s go free. Find out more.
