Things to see:

Kaziranga Forest Trail

Immerse yourself in Dublin Zoo’s wonderful Asian rainforest and spot our breeding elephant herd. With pools, dramatic rock formations and a waterfall all surrounded by a dense forest of trees and bamboo, the Kaziranga Forest Trail is a wonderful natural environment created with the needs of the elephants in mind.

Visitors can see our expanding family of Asian elephants, Matriarch Bernhardine (born 1984) and her daughter Asha (born May 2007), and Bernhardine’s sister Yasmin (born 1990), her daughter Anak (born 2003) and three calves born in 2014 Kavi, Ashoka and Samiya. Asha’s daughter Zinda born in September 2016 and the youngest calf born in March 2017!

Orangutan Forest

The highly anticipated Orangutan Forest is now open! The Orangutan Forest was inspired by the natural environment of the Bornean orangutans in the tropical rainforests of Borneo. Visitors can admire the most spectacular feature of the new habitat which features eleven trees, between 7 and 12 meters high that encourage the orangutans’ natural climbing behaviour.

The Orangutan Forest is home to Sibu (37), his mate Leonie (35), their daughter Riona (10) and niece Mujur, born in Dublin Zoo in 2005. The orangutans share the habitat with siamang gibbons, also found in South East Asia. 

African Savannah

Explore the African desert and Southern white rhinos wandering around their grassy savanna home, as giraffes and ostrich roam wild whilst zebras graze on nearby bushes. Visitors can also admire the endangered scimitar-horned oryx who are extinct in the wild – right in the centre of Dublin!
