Animal Encounters

Please note that due to Covid-19, we are currently not running Animal Encounters at the zoo.

We hope to be able to resume the experiences once restrictions lift and the zoo is re-opened. Please do not worry if your animal encounter voucher has run out during lockdown, we will be extending the expiration dates of the vouchers to ensure everyone is able to participate.


We have a range of animal experiences that you can do here at Northumberland Zoo.

These range from short one-on-one encounters with a specific species or we also offer a longer, half-day experience where you can work with a variety of animals.

All experiences must be pre-booked with us once an encounter voucher is purchased.

You can purchase an encounter voucher from our Online Shop below, or alternatively you can Contact Us.
