Join us for your Animal Antics Birthday Party!

Suitable for ages 8yrs +,  this party gives the kids the chance to make enrichment presents for an animal at Colchester Zoo and see them unwrapping their gifts.

They will also get the chance to see how we train the animals here at the Zoo and practice some of the techniques they have seen on each other with fun antics!

PLUS the children will also be able to enjoy a tasty lunch before setting off to spend the rest of the day exploring Colchester Zoo, with the chance to enjoy our daily encounters and hand feed our elephants and giraffes at daily public feeds!

Minimum: 10 children (2 adults are admitted free of charge)
Age: 8yrs +
Lunch: sandwich, savoury snack, a yogurt, piece of fruit and a drink
