Experience includes

Our Junior Keeper Experience is perfect for all those budding zoo keepers. Designed for children aged between 8 and 17, each experience will be exclusive to you and you will be working on a one-to-one basis with our keepers, however if you would like to share this experience with a friend you can book for two people. 

Your experience package also includes entry to the zoo, a parking pass, certificate, mug, fridge magnet, pen, car sticker, badge pin and a voucher for 10% off in our gift shops.

Enjoy a busy half day shadowing our keepers and learn exactly what it takes to care for our animals. 

  • Muck in with the mucking out and get your hands dirty - don't worry, gloves will be provided
  • Get up close and personal as you meet some of our friendlier residents
  • It's feeding time at the zoo! Help our keepers prepare and hand deliver healthy lunches
  • Let your creativity flow as you and our keepers come up with new and exciting enrichment ideas

Each experience is different and you could be working with - tortoises, giraffes, anteaters, tapirs, aardvarks, lemurs, lorikeets, spider monkeys, otters, farm animals, reindeer, pelicans or penguins.

The Junior Keeper Experience is suitable for children aged between 8 and 17 years old. Each participant must be accompanied by a supervising adult (included in the price). Drink and biscuits will be provided for the participant(s) and supporting adult. 

Minimum Age - 8 years.

Please be aware - the half day experiences do not include any activities with tigers, lions, orangutans, gorillas, elephants or sea lions. 

After purchasing your vouchers, please call us to book a date for the experience.  Any additional friends or family members can purchase zoo tickets at the normal rate and can observe from public areas during the zoo's opening hours.

Because nature is unpredictable and the welfare of our animals is paramount, routines and itineraries may be adjusted without notice.
