Big Cat Experience

One-to-one Big Cat experience behind the scenes with our Bengal Tiger, African Lions and our Big Cat Keepers.

COVID19 Update

Thank you for supporting the zoo at this time, this means a great deal to us as providing care for our animals, whilst closed, incurs considerable costs. 

As the office is currently closed, we have set up an automated gift voucher for you to add the recipient's name and a personalised message to send directly to them.   When the office is able to reopen, we will send the remainder of the Gift Pack to the recipient and it will ask them to book in their date.

Please note, that all our experiences, encounters, adoptions, tickets and memberships will have their validity extended to cover the closure period of the zoo.

Be prepared to get up close, really close, with our majestic Lions and Tigers.  Find out what it's really like to be a Zoo keeper as you help with daily enclosure maintenance and food preparation. Feel the adrenaline pumping as you feed the Big Cats their breakfast and enjoy watching the Cats play with their daily enrichment. All whilst learning some fantastic facts from our highly experienced keepers.
