What can I say about the amazing animal encounters and the opportunities to go behind the scenes to touch, feed and watch the animals at close quarters and learn about their living quarters, diet and the work of the keepers? Grace and I had a truly amazing day!! - the gorgeous rhino, the fuzzy tapirs, fascinating elephants, hilarious lemurs, naughty macaque monkeys, cute piglets and their bigger relatives, the enigmatic gorillas, the fabulous tigers and the beautiful Barbary lions. So many great memories - it's impossible to choose a favourite animal or part of the day.
I really wanted to provide some feedback on my daughter's junior ranger day. We visited on Saturday 6th July and definitely weren't disappointed!
excellent and made sure we understood all the health and safety issues as well as making sure the children had fun and were learning. Her sense of fun was infectious and with her cheeky sense of humour, she kept us all entertained. I would like to think that I'm a well-informed animal lover, but I learnt a lot more from George and all the fabulous keepers who took the time to talk to us during our experience day.
