Animal experiences

Meet your favourite animals

Have you ever wondered what it’s like behind the scenes at the zoo?

Come and see for yourself! Our animal and keeper experiences allow you to get up close to some of your favourite animals like our rhinos, giraffes, tapirs and giant tortoises. You can even spend a day as a keeper or junior keeper at one of our zoos.

Great gifts

Our animal experiences make great gifts for birthdays or Christmas and will give you a lifetime of amazing memories.

Or why not just add something special to your day at the zoo?
