Twycross Zoo Animal Experience

Make your day even more memorable with an animal experience!

An animal experience is the perfect way to get up close and personal with some of your favourite animals, plus a chance to pick the brains of our knowledgeable keepers.

Not only will you have a wonderful time and memories to take home forever, but you will also be contributing to the zoo’s conservation work helping to save animals from extinction.

Whether you’re looking for a unique gift or a treat for yourself, our animal experiences are a truly special experience…

Love lemurs? Then this is the perfect experience for you!

Watch their charismatic personalities unfold and discover just why they are a favourite animal here at the Zoo. This is also the perfect time to ask our expert keepers your need-to-know questions!

At the end of the experience you will be awarded with a certificate and a special little something to remember your day.
