Shadowed A Keeper

As an animal lover I was given a birthday gift of "shadow a keeper" hadn't been to a zoo for years and not a great lover of animals in confined spaces however "Paradise Zoo" has changed my perception of Zoo's due solely to the quality of care and devotion given by without exception All the members of staff.
My friend and I found them to be very knowledgeable, caring and dedicated working long hours and often six days a week can't be easy in all weathers but their caring for the animals is paramount.
This Zoo is privately owned and they should be very proud of their staff who do make the difference in making this zoo very special.
Taking note from a previous reviewer who mentioned the cages were too small that was our first reaction but having the hands on experience you find out that these animals are constantly taken out for exercise and not confined as it appears.
The zoo was extremely clean, every single member of staff was helpful informative and extremely pleasant.
A wonderful day out whatever age and if you go don't be afraid to ask questions especially about the animals welfare, they'll be happy to advise you.

Best Experience Of My Life

The experience was faultless! From start to finish I felt like a valued member of the team. It exceeded my expectations. I interacted with so many animal and helped with the feeds and clearing out. As a massive animal lover the animals welfare is always on my mind but Paradise Wildlife Park are very much caring for the welfare of the animals. The stories you are told are heart warming and the keepers are so passionate about what they do. It was the best and most rewarding experience of my life and I did not want it to end.

Shadow A Zoo Keeper

My husband bought me this as a birthday present, and it didn't disappoint! You get to meet so many keepers, most of whom work solely in one area and are therefore very knowledgeable about their animals. Some of the keepers look after animals that you can get very hands-on with, and this really enriched the visit as well as taking part in several feeding times.

I think I got to see each and every animal, and the keepers have such lovely bonds with them that they're instantly comfortable with a new stranger in their midst although we didn't push any animals who didn't seem too up for it. You also get to muck out some areas - beware as some visitors think you work there and start asking questions!

The day feels like a long one, in a good way, but be prepared for information overload! Also allow for the visit to be between 9-5.45; the small print says you can leave when you want but this will mean you miss out on some animals if perhaps you haven't given them advanced warning,

A great experience for an animal lover, and a privilege to get so close to the animals.

What to expect on your Wildlife Keeper Day

Go wild in deepest Hertfordshire and shadow a keeper for the day at the Paradise Wildlife Park! As far as awesome days go, this experience is right up there – as you’ll spend a day behind the scenes at a park that lions, tigers, jaguars, exotic snakes, meerkats, red pandas, zebras, wolves and so many more call home!

 

You’ll start your day by meeting your host zookeeper in the Discovery Centre over some complimentary refreshments, before heading over to the animal park for your experience briefing. As your day progresses you’ll soon find yourself being part of the team, learning how to care for any number of critters that have their home here. Be prepared to really get stuck in, assisting with cleaning, food preparation, feeding and exercising the animals.

 

After a busy morning, you’ll be ready for a tasty lunch – which is also included – before heading back out to have some up close and personal encounters with even more residents of this fantastic wildlife park. This is the kind of day that will put the widest smile on the face of any animal lover, and a hint of envy of other visitors who are on the other side of the fence!

 

Throw in a tee shirt and a certificate as mementos of your unforgettable day and you have a zookeeper experience that really is one of the best!

About the Park

Paradise Wildlife Park is home to over 400 animals, and it is the only place in the UK to house all five big cats! They have farmyard animals, exotic tropical rainforest creatures, wolves, cats, reptiles, small mammals, African savannah land inhabitants and more. But the fun doesn’t stop  with the animals!

 

It also houses adventure playgrounds, a Speedway museum, a farm yard for hands on experiences for all visitors, a mini-golfing area, a soft play area, train and tractor rides, other rides and slides, and a  paddling pool lagoon for the kids to swim in. There are four dedicated eateries on site as well as in park kiosks, so refreshments are never far away. You can even eat whilst watching some of your favourite animals.

 

Paradise Wildlife Park is truly a wonderland of entertainment for the entire family. Not only that, it has developed a reputation for providing visitors with incredible animal encounter experiences.
