Bristol Zoo, Junior ZooKeeper Experience

We booked a junior keeper experience for our daughter's 6th birthday and it was excellent from start to finish.

Booking the experience was easy and even when we had to rearrange this was done with ease.
The event itself was well organised, started promptly and was done on a one to one basis. The lady who took us round (I'm embarrassed to say we didn't get her name) was superb. She was very friendly and informative and made our daughter feel very special.

We followed behind which allowed us to take plenty of photos and video of the experience and also enabled us to hear all the very interesting and relevant facts/information that was being given.

As part of the experience there was food preparation and animal feeding. Our daughter fed the meerkats, lemurs, and fur seals which she thoroughly enjoyed - perhaps the most entertaining was the seals at the end. All keepers that we had contact with were very child friendly and enthusiastic they went out of their way to ensure our daughter had the best time.

Overall, I would highly recommend this experience and I'm fairly sure we will be back both for our daughter and perhaps ourselves.
