What is there to do?

We love a good zoo here at Family Days Out!  Salisbury Zoo is no exception, and you can spend hours looking around the beautiful and cute animals that come all the way from North and South America, and even Australia (g'day mate!) to see you!

They offer a great blend of information and education as kids wander the park, and they even get a chance to interact and participate with some of the animals.

Ever seen a herd of bison roaming together?  It might remind you of the days of Native Americans wandering the plains with them nearby!  Or perhaps you want to check out the sweet little prairie dogs - can you find them when they hide underground?  Perhaps, if you can hear that cute squeaking noise they make!

Kids can learn what an Ocelot is, and even a Rhea, or watch the friendly river otters play!

They zoo also host a number of events throughout the year which kids always love, from Story Time every Tuesday for kids 3 - 5, as well as educational programs such as Home School experiences which are 4 minutes long and held on the first Thursday and third Thursday of the month.  A great way for kids to learn about the different mammals and reptiles they have in the park!

They also offer guided and self-guided tours, as well as theme-specific classroom programs and animals presentations.  What's great - if your school can't make it to the zoo, the zoo can come to you!
