It's chilly outside! Here at Zig Zag Zoo we embrace all kinds of weather and believe there's no such thing as bad weather just bad clothing. 

Please make sure you bring in (named) warm clothing and footwear to keep the little ones cozy on these cold winter days.

Pyjama Day took place on Friday 7th July at Zig Zag Zoo.

We had a wonderful day in our pyjamas and would like to say a very big thank you to everyone for their kind donations to the Foster Hope children.

With greater public awareness about the importance of movement in children of all ages, ZigZagZoo has been making movement a fun and important learning experience. For the past six Fridays, Active Movement, part of Sports Otago, has been giving the young students age appropriate classes.

Feeling the cold this week? Stay warm with a Zig Zag Zoo Beanie! Purchase from reception for just $7.50.

Thank you to everyone who came and joined in with our Winter Festival Parade on Saturday, it was a huge success! ZigZagZoo were very excited to be awarded the prize for having the best business float! As a prize we have received a beautiful Maori sculpture. We had so much fun during the parade, and hope you and your family enjoyed being part of such a fun event. Thank you once again for your support. Here are a few snap shots of the day!

The parade is getting closer and we only have a week left to go!
We are all getting very excited here at the Zoo! Don't forget, if you would like to be involved on the day, there is information at the sign in sheets at both Zoo centers. We would love for you and your whanau to be a part of such a fun experience!

We have been busy here at Zig Zag Zoo getting ready for the Winter Festival Parade which takes place on the 20th June. The theme for this year's parade is sustainability, and we have decided to add a twist to this with a Mid-Winter Christmas theme.

Kia ora Parents. I would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
Both ZigZagZoo’s are open between Christmas and New Year.
Thank you so much for your support over the year and we look forward to working with you and your children in 2015.


SOLAR POWER - We have recently installed solar panels on the centre. These panels take the suns rays and generate electricity. Not only will we generate enough power to run the whole centre, we will be feeding surplus power back into the national power supply all summer !!! We will generate almost 1/2 our power use in winter also. If you look hard you will see the panels, but they are very low profile and actually stick to the roof like a sticker. So they do not visually affect the building at all. We are a green building, green business and we are caring for our environment.

Yay :)
