Is this the best animal interaction available anywhere???

We believe the Wonders of Wildlife (WOW) experience is the most hands-on and interactive approach to conservation education anywhere in the world. You will spend the majority of your day working very closely with many of our larger and more dangerous animals. These activities are vitally important, fun and enriching for the animals.
This unique encounter is once-in-a-lifetime experience and is not something an average zoo visitor would have the opportunity to undertake!

The WOW Tour visits many of our animals—activities may include*           

Discovering the texture of rhino’s skin

Feeding the giraffes

Meeting and feeding lions, tigers and sun bears

Interacting with our meerkats

Helping to provide enrichment for our Tree Kangaroos

Visiting our off-display reptile collection

Going in with a cheetah and seeing this amazing animal up close

Hiding breakfast for our sun bears

Designing food puzzles for our monkeys to solve

Lunch included

*While every attempt is made to include these animals during your day we cannot guarantee it, or the outcome/level of interaction—due to unforeseen circumstances eg off display due to veterinary matter or enclosure maintenance, animals not being interested or simply running out of time during the busy schedule.
