Wolf encounter!

Do you or someone you know have a love of wolves? Are you fascinated by their enigmatic characteristics? Hertfordshire Zoo is the only centre in the UK to offer the unique opportunity to hand feed these majestic animals. Book your wolf feeding experience today for a one of a kind hands-on experience!

The Feed the Wolves animal experience allows you exclusive access to Hertfordshire’s favourite family attraction before opening time. Following welcome drinks in the Zoo HQ a member of our large carnivore team will meet you and escort you to our wolves.

Once positioned safely and the wolves are at ease, you will have the opportunity to hand feed them through the mesh of their habitat.

Throughout your experience our zookeepers will tell you interesting facts about the wolves at the zoo.  They will inform you about important ongoing conservation work Hertfordshire Zoo contributes towards and how this helps to preserve wolves in the wild.

You can purchase an annual membership to the park online here.

Our Gift Vouchers can be redeemed across all of our experiences, including our Wolf Encounter package! Perfect as a gift for friends or family.

Participants are encouraged to take photographs throughout the wolf experience – Please ensure you bring your camera with you. You will receive a full health and safety briefing explaining all you need to know before the experience begins.
