Meet the Tortoises
Due to the situation with COVID-19 (see our latest updates here) 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 gentle giants and meet our oldest resident, Darwin the centenarian. They might not rush over to you, but give them time and they’ll be delighted to see you (and the bowl of tasty treats you’re carrying).
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.
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.
