Get Closer to our Animals!

This exciting experience offers all budding zoo keepers the unique opportunity to go behind the scenes and have a taste of life as a zoo keeper. During this two hour experience you will get to work with some of our zoo keepers and a variety of animals. At the end of your experience you will receive a personalised certificate.

Our keepers will do their best to ensure that the experience is as varied as possible and includes a mix of interesting activities.

Activities may include:

  • Muck out rabbits and guinea pigs and help feed the pygmy goats
  • Prepare food and help feed the meerkats
  • Help feed the bugs and butterflies.
  • Meet the coatis
  • Help clean out and feed some of our parrots
  • Help fly a bird of prey (minimum age 12 years)

Participants must be between 8 – 15 years old. A full day admission for the participant and one adult who will accompany the junior keeper throughout the day, (but who may have to watch some of the experience from public areas.)

The programme of activities will be varied; however we reserve the right, depending on the capability and age of the participants to make reasonable adjustments where necessary to ensure the safety of the participant and the wellbeing of our animals. We guarantee there will be something to suit everyone.

Junior Keeper experience costs £120.00 and lasts for 2 hours.

  • VIP keeper experience, no sharing your day
