Zoo Experiences & Encounters

We are the leading zoo in the UK and Europe for ‘animal experiences'

Hertfordshire Zoo has developed an outstanding reputation for giving people incredible access to some of the world's most exotic and endangered species, including lions and tigers, meerkats and lemurs. These experiences are very safe, educational and allow visitors to establish special bonds with some of our animals. As one of the best days out for families in Hertfordshire, we offer something for everyone.

Each experience includes admission to the zoo, so you can spend the whole day to explore all of our facilities we have to offer around your experience if you wish. You can bring guests who pay normal admission prices online in advance but cannot participate in the experience.
