The gardens, Welcome Centre, play area and toilets are also open.
Visitors to the zoo can now see the recent new arrivals of George the kunekune pig, and the new llamas: Lisa Marie, Vernon, and Gladys, as well as Rosie the penguin, who is approaching her 31st birthday this month.
Tickets are available on the website now at www.sewerbyhall.co.uk and will be released for subsequent phases of the reopening after Government approval. Advance booking is advised to guarantee admission.
General manager Marie Gascoigne said: “We are very excited that we will be able to have visitors back in the zoo again, with lots of new animals for them to see! And it will be great to have outdoor seating back at the café again! We have lots of wide open spaces here, so we look forward very much to the next phase of our reopening.”
