Move to summer accommodation

Aldabra giant tortoises

From today, our three Aldabra giant tortoises will once again be able to chomp on fresh grass, juicy clover and wild herbs directly from the meadow. The Hugos had to wait a little longer before moving into their summer accommodation this year, since night-time temperatures were stuck below the necessary 15 degrees for far too long. But this means that it is now an even greater pleasure to finally be able to spot our three giant tortoises on their summer meadow again and watch what they’re doing.
