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.

Come face to face with our tallest residents and head behind the scenes to learn even more about them.

Accompanied by your guide, you’ll be heading inside Giraffe Heights to assist with various husbandry tasks around their enclosure before catching a keepers-eye view of our herd from a truly unique perspective. You’ll then be taken onto the viewing platform to hand feed our gentle giants and see their bizarrely coloured tongues at work.

Our expert staff will be on hand to guide you through the experience, answer any questions you might have and teach you all about these remarkable animals.

There will be a maximum of 6 people taking part at any one time.

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.
