    Coatis are members of the raccoon family. They are gentle, easy going and incredibly noisy animals.

  • Rhea (Nogook)

    As one of the bird species, it may surprise you that the Rhea cannot fly. Instead, it runs helter skelter across the field as it cannot move in a straight line!

Read what some happy customers have to say

We booked a Zookeeper for the day experience for our 9 year old son and we LOVED it! The staff throughout were friendly and helpful and were always happy to answer any questions we had …. The value for money was also excellent as they got to see lots of different animals for the same price, many places charge for just one. Oh and the pasta pots were delicious. Would definitely recommend.
