Kaziranga Forest Trail Dublin Zoo - Dublin Zoo, Ireland.

Kaziranga Forest Trail

Immerse yourself in our wonderful Asian rainforest and spot our breeding elephant group. With pools, dramatic rock formations and a waterfall all surrounded by a dense forest of trees and bamboo, the Kaziranga Forest Trail is a wonderful natural environment created with the needs of the elephants in mind. Here, and in the elephant house, live our expanding family of Asian elephants...come and meet them: Matriarch Bernhardine (born 1984) and her daughter Asha (born May 2007), and Bernhardine’s sister Yasmin (born 1990), her daughter Anak (born 2003) and three calves born in 2014 Kavi, Ashoka and Samiya. Asha gave birth to a female calf on the 19th of September, 2016. The calf was named Zinda. In March 2017, Matriarch Bernhardine gave birth to her third calf, a girl who has been named Avani by the elephant care team. The elephant herd welcomed another calf in May 2017, this time a boy! The calf has been named Kabir. 

In addition to the six other calves born since 2014, Dublin Zoo welcomed one more male calf to the herd, Sanjay, whose name was selected by a lucky competition winner!

Be sure to catch the elephant keeper talks daily at 12:30pm from March- September and on weekends from October - February
