Viewing times for elephants

Our elephants are on view in their enclosure between 10:30am - 11:00am and 1:30pm - 2:00pm daily, provided dry weather conditions prevail (i.e. not by snow or ice). The elephants cannot be seen outside of these times due to the closure of the Elephant House for renovation work.
