Animal Experiences

Animal Experiences 

We are delighted to announce that from Easter, we will be offering animal experiences for both adults and children. You will have a unique opportunity to go behind-the-scenes with our experienced animals team, learn all about some of your favourite species and get hands-on with feeding. If you book by 31st December, you will enjoy our special introductory prices. If you’re buying this as a gift we can provide a personalised gift certificate by email for the recipient.

 

Feed a meerkat or ring-tailed lemur (10-15 minutes)

The price is £15 per person for adults and children aged 6+, with spaces limited to four people. This does not include your park entry. Available seven days per week from 8th April until 31st October 2022 at 11am for the meerkats and midday for the lemurs.

Meet the tapir and capybaras (30 minutes)
