Our ‘crash of rhinos’ put on a smashing ceremony to reopen the Zoo.

Our group of Southern white rhinos enjoyed breakfast next to a 1.5m tall sign, made of stacked cardboard boxes, but it wasn’t long before 39-year-old Clara decided to lead them all in some daybreak demolition.

We're so excited to have reopened our gates and can't wait to welcome you back. With 600 acres to explore, we're the perfect place to visit if you're looking to blow off the cobwebs of lockdown.
