Experience includes

Due to the situation with COVID-19 we have taken the decision to suspend all sales and bookings of Animal Experiences at this time. If you have a current booking, you will be contacted if it needs to be postponed.  Please keep checking back as we will open sales again once we have capacity to take new bookings, this will be later in the year.

For anyone with a currently unbooked voucher, we will be looking to extend your expiry date once we are accepting bookings again. Further information will be emailed to you when you are able to book again. Thank you for your understanding.

An experience like no other - prepare yourself to be well and truly snuffled by one of our friendliest residents. Aardvarks might be nocturnal but they're very friendly and they love a good snuffle - so they'll be glad to see you, even if you do have to wake them up first!

Joined by an expert guide, you’ll learn about these unique and fascinating creatures and personally deliver their lunch (or rather, midnight snack).

We only accept one booking per slot, so your experience will be exclusive to you… and a friend if you can bring yourself to share!

Each experience lasts for about half an hour and you will be free to enjoy the zoo for the remainder of the day. This experience includes admission into the zoo and you’ll also get a complimentary car park pass and certificate.
