Snooze at the Zoo

‘A night your students will never forget!’

What is Snooze at the Zoo?  

A 24-hour experience, our sleepover at the Zoo gives an exciting insight into the wild world of a zoo at night. This is great for students of all ages and is full of fun packed activities around the Zoo during the day and at night.

The day starts in the morning and may include animal encounters, nature hunts, trails and hot chocolate and marshmallows around the camp fire. With food included in the price, the students will be given a unique ‘Snooze at the Zoo’ t-shirt to take away with them!

Our Snooze at the Zoo experience is catered specifically to the age and individuality of the visiting group and has been custom made for several audiences. These include:

Primary      – A thoroughly hands-on experience where Animal Encounters amaze our younger visitors.

Secondary  – Zoo trails and informative animal feeds make this experience best suited to the secondary student.

Post-16      – Step into the shoes of our DZP keepers and learn how we deliver the best level of care to our animals.

Girl Guides & Scouts  – We are now able to offer specific activities to help those on the way to achieving those badges!
