Events & Experiences

Our fantastic range of keeper experiences and Magic Moments will give you a once in a lifetime chance to get up close and personal with our animals.

Now more than ever the zoo needs your support to help feed your favourite animals and fund the conservation work of RZSS around the world.  Your purchase of a keeper experience voucher makes this vital work possible and we are incredibly grateful for your continued support which will be even more important over the coming months.

Please note, if you are looking for a specific date for your experience, please contact us at experiences@rzss.org.uk before purchasing any vouchers.

Please also note, the next available weekend date for the Junior Keeper Experience is now July 2022. Please contact experiences@rzss.org.uk to secure a date before purchasing a voucher.
