Event Details

Join us from 20th July – 1st September for Tumble’s Summer Celebration!

Meet Tumble the tiger, our brand-new mascot, as he helps us celebrate 10 amazing years of being a conservation, education and research charity, with a summer celebration you won’t want to miss!

Spot all of Tumble’s GIANT party props around the Zoo and look for the hidden letters that accompany them! (Make sure to have your camera ready for the wonderful photo ops!)

Each letter is part of a secret message which you will need to unscramble once you’ve found all 10!

Once you’ve deciphered your special message, pop along to Tumble’s Den, and tell him what you discovered to really make his day!

You’ll also find signs at each giant prop with some of the important conservation, research and education work we’ve accomplished here at DZS over the last DECADE!
