Adelaide Zoo and Monarto Safari are now open again! Here’s what you need to know for your next visit. Find out more

Since you can't come to us - we'll bring the animals to you.

pandaSpending time surrounded by nature is a great way to beat the Coronavirus blues. Unfortunately, while our physical sites are now closed, we hope this page, full of videos, live streams directly from Adelaide Zoo and Monarto Safari Park, colouring fun and much more, will help you stay connected to nature and bring some joy to you and your family.

In addition, we’ll make sure to keep you updated with fresh animal content on our Facebook pages for Adelaide Zoo and Monarto Safari Park and on Instagram at @zoossa as best as we can!

If you’d like to be one of the first to know when we’ll be open again, you can subscribe to our newsletter by clicking here.

 

Live streams - check out what our animals are up to, LIVE!

Drop in at any time to catch up with Adelaide Zoo’s Giant Pandas Wang Wang and Fu Ni and Monarto Safari Park’s Southern White Rhino bull Ibutho and entire Chimpanzee troop – LIVE! Our live stream cameras will allow you to see the animals throughout the day and watch them feed, sleep, explore and, in the chimpanzees’ case, watch as the three adorable little ones play together. We’re bringing the zoo to you so you can stay #athomewiththeanimals.

Can’t see the animals? As our animals’ areas are larger than our cameras can capture and our animals can choose where they hang out, you may not see them at all times. Simply come back later and spot them then.

Pets at home need the same considerations as zoo animals when it comes to nutrition, environment, behaviour and health. Our Animal Welfare Tool for pets lets you assess the welfare of your animals in your own home, and includes helpful tips and advice for ensuring your pet is leading a happy and healthy life.
