Zoo Keeper for a Day

(Full day experience, 8am - 5pm. Over 18s only)

Ever fancied mucking in (or mucking out) with a real-life zoo keeping team? Well now’s your chance!

We're one of the only zoos in the UK that offers a one-to-one personal keeper day working with the animal section of your choice.

You can choose from a range of animals to look after, including some of the world’s most endangered species.

Working alongside our expert keepers, you’ll learn a huge amount about your chosen animal, and about life at the zoo. As well as having a brilliant time!

Starting at 8am and finishing at 5pm, you’ll get involved in every part of the Keeper’s day, from preparing food to feeding and cleaning out. Plus whatever surprises may come along.

We hold our Keeper Days on Wednesdays and bookings and payments are taken over the phone.

Tea breaks and lunch are all included, plus you’ll get a signed certificate in a presentation pack and a gift to remember your special day.

All the money we raise through this scheme goes to support our wide range of conservation work at the zoo and around the world. Right now we have projects running in over 100 countries. So your day as a keeper will be making a difference to worldwide conservation too!

Vouchers for 2020 will be available to book from 8am on 1 November 2019. Vouchers are sold on a first come first serve basis (maximum of 2 vouchers per purchase). Please note that our phone operators will receive a very high number of calls on this date therefore we cannot guarantee availability. 

£250-£280 per person
