Adult Keeper Experience

Adult Keeper Experience

Roll up your sleeves, put on your boots, get your hands dirty and join our animal keepers at New Forest Wildlife Park for an hour, 2 hours, or a half or full day.

We’ll be happy to vary your Keeper Experience, depending on the time you want to spend with us and your individual interests.

If you’re mad about otters, help to get their food ready and watch them squeak with excitement as you feed them their dinner. Or would you prefer to feed the deer?

With food preparation, feeding times, animal enrichment activities and general animal care, a Keeper Experience will give you first-hand experience of what it’s like to be a keeper and how things work behind the scenes.

Throughout your Keeper Experience you will be accompanied by one of our knowledgeable and friendly animal keepers, who will ensure you have an exciting, safe and enjoyable time.

A Keeper Experience is the perfect way to say thank you to a loved one, for a birthday, anniversary or celebration, or for a gift with a difference. So contact us to find out more and we’ll do our best to make your Keeper Experience special.
