What to expect

You will arrive at ZSL Whipsnade 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 Asian rhinos! Once you are finished you will then visit and feed the giraffe before getting your own lunch, followed by a visit to either the meerkats or otters. You will end the day looking after our Asian Elephants.

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.
