Our first antelope


Hobbledown is delighted to welcome its first antelope to the fold.

We have welcomed six nilgai to our collection – one male and five females.

Nilgai is the largest Asian antelope and we are one of only a handful of attractions in the UK that have them as part of our zoological collection.

The Nilgai arrived in time for Love Your Zoo Week, a nationwide celebration that ran from May 28th to June 4th.

Below are some photos from Love Your Zoo Week.

    I saw them today they rate really beautiful and looked really happy in their new home with their own lake and a field full of buttercups
