About

Plan a visit to Amazona Zoo in Cromer, one of Norfolk’s most unique and fun days out where families can explore animals native to South America. It is home to over 200 tropical animals including new Jaguarundi, Jaguar (arriving soon), birds of prey, Pumas, Parrots, Monkeys, Snakes, Flamingos and Tapirs. Also you can find a Spider House and a cute Guinea Pig Village.

The zoo also has an outdoor adventure play and picnic area featuring the popular Jumping Pillows!

The zoo is committed to helping visitors discover nature and provides education on conservation issues set within 15 acres on the north Norfolk coast. The Yurt is the hub for educating visitors and includes the history of South America and facts on the animals who call Amazona home. It’s also available for birthday parties.

Also there is an indoor soft play area named 'Jungle Tumbles'. Open all-year-round, Jungle Tumbles soft play centre is a fun and safe adventure for under 12's.

There is the Jungle Café for homemade lunches and a gift shop on site.

There are at least four 'feed the animal' events a day, with jaguar and pumas on alternate days (check ahead for events before your visit).

See the Pumas, Jaguarundi and Ocelot in the Feline Forest and head to the Tropical House from the Capuchin walkway and encounter the Currasow and the Piping Guan. After the bridge, see the Spectacled Caiman and spot the Red-tailed Catfish or the Black Pacu. Follow the path into the shadows to find the Iguanas, the Anaconda and the Boa Constrictors. 

See native migratory species such as Greylag Geese and Mallard, as well as Chiloe Wigeon, Brazilian Teal, Coscoroba Swan and the iridescent Comb Duck and Chilean Flamingos. If you're interested in birds of prey, there are Red-legged Seriema (South America's nearest relation to birds, known in the rest of the world as cranes). Striated Caracara, also known as Johnny Rook, are found predominantly in the Falkland Islands and small islands off Tierra del Fuego. Once abundant in numbers there are approximately only 500 pairs left in the Falklands.

See the the world's largest rodent, Capybara. It is an excellent swimmer, with eyes, nostrils and ears set in alignment across the top of the head. 
Brazilian Tapir- One of the largest of three species to be found in South America, this one has the widest distribution. Its closest relatives are the rhinoceros and the horse. And there's lots more!

If you fancy making a night of it, you can pitch your tent at Cromer Camping and visit the zoo! www.CromerCamping.com. Then visit the nearby PYO (Pick Your Own) and even play a bit of Football Golf.
