This amazing Keeper for a Day experience gives a once in a lifetime opportunity to get up close and personal with some of ZSL’s most popular animals, and also offers a unique insight into the day-to-day life of ZSL keepers and their charges.
Budding keepers can try their hand at tasks such as feeding the giraffes, mucking out rhino, meeting the elephants, cleaning the penguin pool and going behind the scenes at the big cats, all of which makes a day to remember for any animal lover!
Participants need to be over 16 years old, Keeper for a Day is held all year-round at ZSL London Zoo or between April – October ZSL Whipsnade Zoo.
Lookout Lodge – open April – October prices starting from £125
The ultimate overnight experience, a once in a lifetime chance to live next door to our rhinos!
ZSL Whipsnade Zoo is a special place during the day but it’s even more magical at night. It comes alive in a way that visitors don’t usually get to experience. Stay in a private lodge nestled at the heart of the Zoo. Take a twilight tour and wake up to breakfast with the residents including the wolf pack. Each lodge is fitted with beds, a heater and lights to ensure ultimate comfort.
Lookout Lodge is a fantastic experience for animal lovers of all ages or those simply wanting to escape everyday life for a night.
