Zookeeper for a day

Ever wondered what it would be like to be a zookeeper? If so, a Zookeeper for the Day experience could be perfect for you!

Our Zookeeper for the Day experience involves a cross-section of the animals we have here at the zoo. Our regular keepers might be asked to work on any of our animal sections, and you’ll be no different! This full day experience offers you the amazing opportunity to step in to the zookeeper’s role and learn what they do, as you assist with their duties including, for example, cleaning, food preparation, animal husbandry and enrichment. Whether you’re chopping up fruit for the lemurs, sweeping up after the meerkats or taking observations on tiger behaviour, you’ll get a unique insight into life behind the scenes at the zoo. Lunch is provided on the day, though please make us aware at the time of booking of any specific dietary requirements.

After your experience, you are welcome to make the most of the remainder of your day in the Zoo and, if time allows, even return to the Zoo within 7 days for just £1 per person …what great value! We now also offer this experience for two people priced at £290. Please call our helpful retail team if you wish to book this experience for two people.
