This is an exciting opportunity to go behind the scenes and get up close to some of the park’s favourite residents as an Apprentice Zookeeper for a day right here in the Lake District.
The Tapirs love to be groomed so under the guidance of our keeper you can do just that! Once you have spent some time with the tapirs, help to prepare daily enrichment for the meerkats before entering their world to become part of the mob. Then, on to the enigmatic ring tailed lemurs troop where you will offer them a meal prepared by your own fair hands! Don’t forget to bring your camera to capture your experience.
Following the experience, take time to explore the Wildlife Park, watch the demonstrations and treat yourself to a cup of tea or coffee and a slice of cake.
Keeper experiences take place year round.
Minimum 2 persons maximum 4 persons 8 years +
Duration 1 hour
Got a favourite species?
Our Zookeeper experience is a great way to meet some of your favourite animals, but if you would rather focus on an individual species, we have lemur encounters, meet the meerkats, a bird of prey experience and even Alpaca walking.
If you have an enquiry please contact us and one of our team will be in contact with you.
