Plantasia Tropical Zoo – Parkwood Leisure

Parc Tawe Retail Park, Swansea, SA1 2AL.



Extra Details

Plantasia Tropical Zoo is an indoor rainforest zoo with over 40 species of animal, and hundreds of tropical plants. Schools can have structured curriculum linked workshops, plus have a chance to explore the jungle setting.

Schools can choose from general admission only, or select one of 5 curriculum linked workshops. These include Rainforest Rangers, Marvellous Minibeasts, Eco Warriors, Predators & Prey – the food chain, or Roots, Shoots, Flowers and Leaves. Many of these workshops are interactive, and include animal handling sessions for those brave enough! If a school cannot visit, they also offer virtual sessions, or their ‘Plantasia on the Road’ programme, sponsored by Admiral, where they bring their workshop and animals directly to the classroom.

Don’t forget, if you are looking for help with funding the cost of your trip, you can apply for a bursary!
