Do you know someone who loves animals and visiting zoos, but would love to be where the zoo keeper is – inside an animal enclosure, perhaps even feeding an animal? Well, now’s your chance to make that dream come true for your friends and family!

We offer a range of experiences to suit all ages and abilities from “Tickling a Tapir” to being a “Keeper for the Day”. They can feed lemurs or, if you think they’re brave enough, the big cats!  Don’t worry about restricted ability – we have an Assisted Keeper Experience which can be tailored to any person’s needs.

Have a look below, book that experience and wait for the voucher to pop through their door! You could be very popular this Christmas!
