Access to the upper level of the Lion House

Due to essential maintenance to replace the ramp leading up to the gantry over-looking the lions, the ramp access will be closed from Monday 16th April until Friday 8th June 2018. Access is still available via the stairs however, due to these works, there is no access for wheelchairs, mobility scooters or pushchairs. The lions will still be visible at ground level from the perimeter fence. We apologise for any disappointment caused whilst this essential maintenance is completed.

The Zoological Society of East Anglia Photo Competition

Following the phenomenal enthusiasm expressed through the several hundred entries to the 2017 competition, Zoological Society of East Anglia (ZSEA) is pleased to announce the 2018 PHOTOGRAPHIC COMPETITION. (Entries welcome from 1st May 2018).

The display of 2018 photos remains on show at Africa Alive! (Lion Gantry) to the visitor’s delight.

Those with digital cameras and who are internet savvy can email their entries directly to ZSEA via the website and pay the competition entry fees via PayPal through our website. Photos are still welcome by post too!

We will display the photo entries on large widescreen television monitors at Banham Zoo coupled to computers. An ever changing selection of all submitted photos will be displayed as a matter of course, however visitors will be able to select the various categories and individual photos via the computer terminals.

To ensure that every photo submitted can be enjoyed by a wide audience, the photos will also be added to this website when the competition closes.
