Shows run from Saturday 11th February to Sunday 12th November 2019 inclusive.

The show times are displayed daily, both at the zoo entrance and throughout the zoo.

    Admire the characteristic yawn of the hippos trying to catch everything the trainer throws their way! Despite being heavy on land, they are extremely comfortable and at ease in the water.

    The hippopotamus is not currently an endangered species, but the species is noticeably in decline as its canines have become extremely sought after since the sale of elephant ivory was banned. Furthermore, the hippopotamus is often killed by farmers when it causes damage in farming land.
