As well as exotic animals, Banham Zoo is also home to domestic animals from around the world.

Many of these can be seen in ‘La Hacienda’ near to the zoo entrance. Here you will see the pygmy goats from Africa, guinea pigs from South America, and Kune Kune pigs from New Zealand as well as many more!

You can also visit our infamous rat room and see how many you can spot – You can even give them a bite to eat!

In ‘La Hacienda’ you will be able to touch or feed some of the animals, however for health and safety reasons we ask that if you touch any of the animals or their enclosure barriers, you use the hand washing facilities available.
