UPDATE ON OUR EXPERIENCE DAYS
Life at the zoo is a little bit different at the moment, so our incredible animal encounters and experience days are on hold for now. If you had an animal experience day booked with us, then our team will be in touch to chat with you about our plans for the future. We’re hopeful that our experiences can go back on sale at some point in 2021. Thanks so much for your patience and support.
A Chester Zoo EXPERIENCE DAY offers a unique opportunity to get closer to our animals and plants, with expert knowledge from our staff.
WHAT TO EXPECT FROM A CHESTER ZOO EXPERIENCE DAY
You’ll get exclusive, behind-the-scenes access that will give you an insight into the daily lives of our staff and animals at the zoo. A Chester Zoo experience day can involve anything from potting a carnivorous plant to getting up close and personal with a giraffe! With eight different options to choose from, our experiences will bring you closer to wildlife than ever before. Learn all about the individual animals at the zoo and their quirky behaviours from our dedicated zoo keepers, or show us your green fingers in our gardener for a day experience.
HELP US PREVENT EXTINCTION
Our gifts and experiences are a perfect way to support us; whether you’re treating yourself or a loved one, you will be helping us in our mission of preventing extinction. Proceeds from our zoo experience days help fund our vital conservation work here at the zoo, in the UK and all around the world – which is great news for animals everywhere! THANK YOU!
