Mini Zoo Keepers is currently not being offered as it undergoes a revamp. Stay tuned in 2018 as Mini Zoo Keepers returns bigger and better than ever!

Little animal lovers aged five and under will have a wild time on this zoo adventure as they come face-to-face with meerkats, zebras, giraffes, antelopes and rhinos. The morning begins with a meerkat feed and then it's time for a child-friendly, 40 minute Off Road Safari through the African Savannah.

On the Off Road Safari you'll meet a range of African animals and learn all about them from your very own Safari Guide! 

This is an intimate experience with a maximum of 14 people on the tour.

Mini Zoo Keepers is part of the excitement for zoo toddlers! Available on Tuesdays and Fridays during the school term. Bookings are essential.

Please note: Mini Zoo Keepers does not run during the school holidays.
