Enjoy a unique day out in the beautiful ancient woodlands of New Forest Wildlife Park where you will find over 260 animals from 40 species including many native species both past and present. Watch the exotic and noisy Giant otters from the Amazon, the rare and beautiful Scottish wildcat, pine martens wolves, lynx, magnificent bison to name but a few. Meet our knowledgeable and friendly keepers as they feed the animals – they do love to chat about the animals in their care. Two impressive playgrounds for all ages which may test everyones abilities and burn off some of that extra energy ! A good cup of coffee and snack and maybe a visit to the gift shop rounds of a fun and interesting visit to New Forest Wildlife Park .
If you are as fascinated by animals as we are you may wish to try a Keeper Experience for a deeper insight into their care and future.
You’ll get to work on a 1-2-1 basis with one of our, friendly knowledgeable keepers, giving you plenty of opportunities to ask questions and to tailor your visit to your individual interests.
Wearing your New Forest Wildlife Park T-shirt or baseball cap, you’ll be part of the keeper team, getting to see how everything works behind the scenes.
Keeper experiences are flexible, and range from 1-hour sessions minimum age 5, 2-hour sessions minimum age 10 and 3 hour sessions minimum age 16, depending on your preferences.
Partners and family members are welcome along to the park too, but will not be part of the keeper experiences as this is a 1-2-1 experience (children have one accompanying adult free of charge). Please get in touch for more information.
Available all year round, Keeper Experiences make an ideal gift, anniversary or birthday present for family and friends.
