Animal Experiences

Want to get up close and personal with animals! Or ever wondered what a zoo/ animal keeper does? Well you can we have many great options for a school trip animal experience where your class or educational group can be hands on with animals of all shapes and sizes.  It’s an amazing fantastic experience you will never forget, learn all about their habitat, country of origin, animal behaviour and special abilities in the wild, but best of all their feeding habits which in your educational group and under supervision feed the animal (hope it’s not you!).

So, whether you are looking for your interactive animal experience at a Zoo, Working Farm, Wildlife Park or Safari you will never forget that amazing hands on experience of a living breathing animal up close. All of these fantastic animal experiences can be designed around your school group and cover subjects such as biology from KS1 to A level and university which are interlinked to the national curriculum.
