Terms and conditions

The Experience is available for adults aged 18 years and over.

It will take place behind the scenes and before the zoo is open to the public; therefore is not suitable for spectators to come along and watch you take part.

Regrettably certain guests will be unable to take part including people with relevant phobias or known allergies, pregnant women and immunocompromised individuals.

Whilst every effort is made to accommodate those with a disability or learning difficulty, due to practicality and health and safety this cannot always be achieved – contact Chester Zoo before purchasing.

Maximum of 2 people per experience.

COVID safety requirements

Face masks are mandatory for all participants even those who are medically exempt. All participants MUST wear a dark coloured face mask.

All guests’ hands must be washed/sanitised prior to starting and after an experience.

All guests within proximity to our animals must also wear protective gloves which shall be provided.

Social distancing must always be adhered to by guests when in proximity of staff and other guests.

Limited capacities have been introduced to all experiences to ensure social distancing can be maintained for the safety of our animals, visitors and staff.

Unfortunately the keepers will be unable to take photographs for you during the experience with your own devices, but when the keepers say it is safe to do so you are more than welcome to take some yourself.
