Meet your favourite animals with this hands on experience

Nestled away in 32 acres of woodland and paddocks in the heart of rural Shropshire, Hoo Farm Animal Kingdom is a small family run zoo located on the outskirts of Telford. With animals such as meerkats, lemurs, snakes and owls and even African wildcats, the zoo is a fantastic day out for people of all ages.

This Half Day Animal Keeper experience allows anyone from the age of 6-years-old and upwards the chance to meet and come face-to-face with a wide-variety of incredible animals, including lemurs, meerkats, owls, reptiles, hedgehogs and even a giant tortoise.
