Planet Zoo is the ultimate zoo simulation featuring authentic living animals, rich management, and limitless creativity, players can build and manage a truly modern zoo where animal welfare and conservation comes first.

From the makers of Planet Coaster (2016) and Jurassic World Evolution (2018) comes the ultimate zoo simulation, featuring authentic living animals, rich management, and limitless creativity. Build and manage a truly modern zoo where animal welfare and conservation comes first.

Planet Zoo presents the most authentic animals in videogame history. From playful lion cubs to mighty elephants, every animal in Planet Zoo is an individual who thinks, feels and explores the world you build around them. They care about their surroundings and each other, with complex environmental and social needs. Nurture your animals throughout their lives, study and manage every species to see them thrive, and help them raise young to pass their genes onto future generations.

Manage your own zoo in an expressive world that reacts to every choice you make. Focus on the big picture or go hands-on and look after the smallest details. Thrill visitors with prestigious animals and famous exhibits, develop your zoo and research new technologies, and release animals back into the wild to repopulate the planet.


Frontier Developments announced an exciting new expansion for its zoo simulation, Planet Zoo. Inspired by Africa’s diverse cultures and rich ecosystems, Planet Zoo: Africa Pack arrives on Steam on 22 June 2021 for a suggested retail price of £7.99 / $9.99 / €9.99.

Packed full of new content for zookeepers to test their skills, Planet Zoo: Africa Pack introduces a selection of extraordinary animals to the game. The sociable Meerkat - a sought after fan favourite sure to delight guests as they create their tunnel homes using an authentic new digging behaviour; the endearing Fennec Fox, whose small stature and enormous ears help it to stay cool on the African plains; the amazing African Penguin, whose fun side comes out to play with the new Disco Ball enrichment item; and the striking Southern White Rhinoceros. 

Alongside the four new habitat animals available in Planet Zoo: Africa Pack, is the Sacred Scarab Beetle exhibit animal. Zoo guests will watch in amazement as these impressive insects roll their signature dung balls.

In addition to this exciting range of creatures, players can unleash their creativity with over 180 new pieces of scenery inspired by the colourful architecture of North Africa. Zookeepers can use everything from mudbrick, vivid mosaic tiles, brightly painted benches, and a wide range of new foliage, including tall green palm trees, to create immersive experiences for their guests as they take in the continent’s rich culture.

Also included in the pack is a brand new timed scenario, which unfolds in a secluded oasis bazaar. Things could get heated, as players work to solve problems and transform a struggling attraction into the perfect environment for both animals and guests. 

Planet Zoo: Africa Pack launches alongside a v1.6 free base-game update that brings a range of extras and improvements. This includes behaviour updates, habitat webcams, vista points and a free Timed Scenario set in gorgeous Guatemala.

Please note the Planet Zoo: Africa Pack requires the Planet Zoo base game in order to download and play. Planet Zoo is available now on Steam with an RRP of £34.99 / $44.99 / €44.99, Planet Zoo Deluxe Edition RRP for £42.99 / $54.99 / €54.99 or the Planet Zoo Deluxe Upgrade Pack for £9.99 / $11.99 / €11.99.
