Ever wondered what it would be like to be a zookeeper? If so, a Zookeeper for the Day experience could be perfect for you!
Become part of our keeping team and help care for our wallabies, farm animals, primates, reptiles, big cats and more! Including close encounters with our meerkats, lemurs and minibeasts. Meet our big cats up close and let them out for their afternoon enrichment.
Accompanied by your very own VIP Guide our Zookeeper for the Day experience involves a cross-section of the animals we have here at the zoo. 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 providing enrichment for our big cats, 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.
Once you have booked online you will be contacted by a member of staff to make a reservation on a date that suits you. If you are buying this as a gift, then a voucher will be mailed to you with instructions on how to book using the voucher.
