With temperatures maintained at 2 to 4 degree Celsius throughout, this purpose-built facility is one of the region’s ultimate attractions for penguin lovers. This not only lets you catch up with penguins , but also gives you the rare chance to know all about these fascinating residents, from its playful antics and sensitive personality to how they are cared for in this setting that painstakingly replicates its natural Sub Antarctic habitat. Besides several amazing segments that make them feel at home (including a slide and the pool), there is even a unique lighting system that mimics the penguins’ annual light cycle.
