The Zoo Keeper for a Day experience is very popular, and we've got two things we think you'll love to hear:

On Tuesdays and Wednesdays only, from 0945 to 1345 hrs, you can experience what it is like to be a zoo keeper. This is for a limited time only, and a date must be booked (no open vouchers available).

2. There is space available for 3 half day keepers (aged 6 - 15) THIS SATURDAY, 21 NOVEMBER.

To book, call the office on 01506 870000.

There may be puddles ahead...

Posted on in News

Due to recent wet weather there may be puddles at the zoo, so please dress appropriately. We suggest wellies or other sturdy footwear.

... it's warm and dry in The Lost Kingdom where our crocodiles live!


See you soon!

Lion arrival 600px.5

UPDATE AS AT 21st OCTOBER 2015: They are here! We are absolutely delighted to announce that the four ex-circus lions have safely arrived and are now here at Five Sisters Zoo in West Lothian for all to see. After a long campaign to raise the funds needed to ensure that we could build such a wonderful permanent home for the lions and bring them safely here, it is truly fantastic to see them already settling in. They arrived here at the zoo very late on the Sunday evening (18 October 2015) and were introduced to their fabulous 2-acre home on Monday morning.

We send out our utmost thanks to everyone who has helped us to achieve this fantastic mission, and been a part of the journey. We encourage you all to see the lions here at Five Sisters Zoo, whom you have come so involved with through your fundraising efforts and online and offline sharing of their story.

Thank you for your support, and we look forward to seeing you soon.
