Committed to conservation, research and rescuing wayward Antarctic penguins, Wellington Zoo is also home to a plethora of native and non-native wildlife, including lions and chimpanzees. The nocturnal house has kiwi and tuatara. Check the website for info on ‘close encounters’, which allow you to meet the big cats, red pandas and giraffes (for a fee). The zoo is 4km south of the city; catch bus 10 or 23.
