Chester Zoo is the UK's number one charity zoo, with over 7,000 animals and 400 different species, some of them amongst the most endangered species on the planet. There's plenty to see and do, like the Realm of the Red Ape enclosure, home to the Bornean and Sumatran orang-utans. Experience the sights and sounds of Assam, with the herd of Asian elephants, hornbills, tree shrews and rare fish inside Elephants of the Asian Forest. View the world's fastest land mammal, the cheetah, from the new Bat's Bridge. See a wide variety of beautifully coloured African birds housed in African Aviaries, and Philippine crocodiles in their new enclosure in the Tropical Realm.
