What to expect

You will arrive at ZSL London Zoo where you will be met by your friendly and experienced zoo keeper host who will give you your keeper overalls followed by an introduction and a health and safety briefing.

You will then head off to get stuck into your first job of the day, mucking out our giraffe, zebra or camel. Once you are finished you will visit and feed the giraffe before getting your own lunch and seeing the meerkats and coatis, as well as some of our other animal residents. After a full day with the animals you will end your day with a cup of tea and cake!

This is a hands-on experience so you will be getting up close to our animals as well as actively helping to take care of them.
