Zoo Keeper Experiences
Noah's Ark Zoo Farm offers unique Zoo Keeper Experiences for animal lovers of all ages.
Our keeper experiences were 'Highly Commended' for Tourism Activity, Sport or Experience in the South West Tourism Awards 2013 and in 2012. We were also a finalist for 'Tourism Experience of the Year' in the Bristol Tourism and Hospitality Awards in 2013 and 2011.
Noah's Ark provides a truly memorable experience. Each experience is one-to-one and designed specifically to give the participant the rare opportunity to get up close and hands-on with some amazing animals and gain a better understanding of the important daily work of a Zoo Keeper.
A perfect gift for friends and family, or a special treat just for you!
