Banham Zoo Banham Award Winning Attraction
Banham Zoo is based at Banham not far from the market town of Attleborough. Banham Zoo is an award winning family attraction and one of the most exciting wildlife attractions in the country. We have over 2,000 animals from around the world and set in 50 acres of beautiful parkland and gardens. Banham Zoo welcomed its first guests in 1968 and was opened by Martin Goymour who is the third generation of a well-respected Norfolk family. On Valentine’s Day 14th February 2013, Banham Zoo, along with our sister park Africa Alive! near Lowestoft, Suffolk, became part of The Zoological Society of East Anglia Charity ZSEA We by becoming a registered charity has enabled the parks to secure their long term futures, with the primary aims to the advancement of education, zoology, animal welfare, environmental protection and continue with the important work undertaken for wildlife conservation across the world.
A fantastic half century of animals, education, imagination, fun, community, science, and conservation, all made possible with the help of you. Banham Zoo would like to thank all our visitors, members, donors, sponsors, community partners and many others for joining us on this great adventure and for supporting our mission to save animals from extinction. Together, we can continue to make a difference for wildlife and inspire new generations, for the next 50 years and beyond!
