2/15.  Gibbon Forest

The gibbons are going ga-ga for their new home at Twycross Zoo, and you’ll love watching all their antics as they swing through the trees above four moated islands. Gibbon Forest is ten times larger than their previous enclosure so they’re enjoying the space – and it’s designed to recreate their natural habitat in the forests of south-east Asia. The zoo is home to four gibbon species, all of which are endangered – the agile, pileated, siamang and Northern white-cheeked. Top off your day with a visit to the zoo’s other attractions including Giraffe Savannah, Elephant Creek and a huge water-play area
