Hi, I wondered if anyone else was aware that Colchester Zoo are purposely keeping Tembo & Zola off show to the public? I received an adoption of Tembo from my girlfriend, but had to switch it to Tanya after finding out that Tembo's paddock wouldn't be put on show to the public again. This is what I got from their customer services: As you will have been informed during your experience Tembo was a rescued elephant and therefore kept in the quieter area of the elephant enclosure along with Zola who was also rescued. Unfortunately, the pathway around the back of the enclosure is not good enough for us to allow the public to use. We do not usually take adoptions for Tembo for this reason but he was requested because you had had an experience previously with the elephants. We can change your adoption to another elephant if you wish. It seems strange to me that they're suddenly blocking off access, even though Zola has been on show for years & Tembo was also on show for many years before being put into private. Perhaps something happened which we don't know about which caused this to happen.
