Guide to Little Africa – An Animal Adventure
Due to government restrictions, we are unable to open our nocturnal house or walkthrough aviary until the 17th May. The rest of Little Africa, including our Meerkat enclosure, is open as normal. Thank you for your understanding.
What animals are there?
Little Africa houses a number of animals native to the continent, including fennec fox, African crested porcupines, meerkats, Savannah monitor lizards and giant train millipedes, as well as one of the largest rodents in Africa, the Gambian pouched rat, and also the smallest, the African pygmy mouse. At the centre of Little Africa is an impressive aviary where a mix of bird species such as the lilac-breasted rollers and black-crowned night herons, will share the same environment that has been designed to replicate an African waterhole
Are there any special features?
Yes! Little Africa features a walk-through aviary. For the first time ever at Paultons guests will be able to go inside the aviary and be with the unique birds. Plus the nocturnal house is a magnificent indoor area where visitors enter the dark to see a variety of animals in a low light environment.
Can I see photographs and videos of the new attraction?
