Keeper Shadowing Experiences
Get closer to the animals with a Keeper Shadowing Experience!
This is the perfect experience for anyone who is passionate about a particular species of animal!
Offering you the chance to enjoy a personal experience with your favourite species from our selected shadowing species, this makes a great gift for a loved one or simply a treat for yourself.
Each Keeper Shadowing Experience includes:
- A private half hour close up experience with your chosen animal and a member of the Animal Care Team
- Full day complimentary entry to Colchester Zoo
- Refreshment voucher
- Souvenir gift
Price: £85 per person
We encourage those currently in Tier 3 or 4 areas to purchase an Experience Gift Voucher rather than booking a date at this time to avoid having to reschedule your experience.
We are not currently taking any further bookings for January or February 2021. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
Each experience lasts for approx. half an hour, but you will have access to Colchester Zoo from 9.30am as the Zoo opens, right up until the end of the day. Your souvenir pack can be collected at the end of the day from our Experience Check In.
