Junior Zoo Keeper Experience

Junior Animal Keeper Experience for children behind the scenes with our Giraffe, Tapirs and Meerkats.

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.

This fantastic experience takes children behind the scenes to find out what it's like to be a Junior Zoo Keeper. Children can get up close and hands on with our scaley Reptiles, mob of Meerkats, Tapir and Giraffe. Junior Keepers can delight in feeding our mob of Meerkats their bug breakfast. Children might be surprised to find out that reptiles are not slimey but instead are cool and dry to touch. Don't forget to snap a picture of your little Keeper with a Giraffe!
