There is no charge to attend the shows/encounters. Please note that some encounters or shows may have to be postponed or changed to an alternative as a result of weather conditions or other factors, however we make it a priority to ensure you have a fantastic day with us and will continue with scheduled activities wherever possible.

We sell animal feed at admission and at our gift shop. We limit the number of measured portions available to buy daily to ensure our animals receive a balanced diet. Please note this excludes some of our animals who have special dietary requirements.

Please wash your hands before all Animal Encounters and ensure you do not bring food with you to any Animal Encounters or to the Bird Displays. This is essential for your safety, and for that of our animals and we appreciate your co-operation.
