Experience includes


Aardvarks, lemurs, tapirs and penguins enjoy meeting new people, especially when food or a tickle might be involved.  Come and experience meeting one of these unique and fascinating animals. 

Each mini experience includes the chance to work with zoo staff and feed these fascinating species. This is being REALLY close to nature.

You’ll receive a voucher for this experience, which is perfect to give as a gift. The participant will then need to call us to book a date for their experience. On arrival at the zoo, the participant will receive an Animal Experience Pack which includes a parking pass, meal voucher, guidebook, certificate, mug, key ring, pen, car sticker, badge pin, 10% discount in our shops and a special rate of £10.00 for zoo admission for an observer. 

The voucher is valid for 12 months from date of purchase. We only book one experience per day, so you will not be part of a larger group. If you would like to be joined by a friend, you have the option to book for two people.

Please note - we have now sold out of Penguin Experience vouchers for 2017. Vouchers bought now will be for bookings in 2018. 

A voucher for this experience can be bought online, in person or by calling 01253 830801.

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