Twycross zoo is a nice friendly animal park near Coventry. You can buy an animal encounter with one of four animals, or the familiar keeper experience which gives you an overview of all the zoo’s animals.
The animal encounters take in penguins, meerkats, giraffes or otters. Surprisingly this is one of the only otter experiences in the UK. You can certainly feed otters on other zookeer for a day experiences but otter-feeding on it’s own is a strangely rare experience. So if you know someone who loves otters, this is for you! Note that prices for the animal encounters do not include admission to the zoo but you get 10% off entrance if booked with experience.
The keeper for a day experience takes in the usual aspects of animal care including cleaning, food preparation and feeding, and aims to take in pets, primates, elephants and birds. The day includes free refreshments, lunch, and a presentation certificate as a memento of your day. You do get free admission if you buy a keeper experience, but make sure you check that this hasn’t change when you buy.
You can’t book online but there’s a phone number to call if you want to book an experience.
