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! Whether you’re chopping up fruit for the lemurs, sweeping up after the meerkats or taking observations on tiger behavior, you’ll get a unique insight into life behind the scenes at the zoo.

As a memento from your experience you will receive a certificate and gift - please collect this after your experience with us.

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.
