Read what some happy customers have to say
We had the Zookeeper for the day experience for our 8 year old nephew and he absolutely loved it from start to finish! I won’t give away too much about which animals you get to meet as keeping some of it as a surprise was part of the fun of the day however they were all truly brilliant – If you decide to do it you will not be disappointed. The Hobbledown zookeepers were AMAZING (we had Gavin, Miles & Jamie) – they really knew their stuff, were incredibly accommodating and so kind to my nephew. We learnt so much and had fun whilst doing it. It truly was an amazing day – thank you Hobblers!
