Animal Encounters and Zookeeper for a day

We have all kinds of great animal encounters on offer at Action And Adventure. We don't just mean a day out to see the animals in the park, we mean close up and personal with a wide range of our furry and feathered friends. There are some exciting and informative experiences available across the country and we're sure to have something of interest to you or for a great gift for someone special.

Be a zookeeper for a day, meet Meerkats or Lemurs, try your hand at being a shepherd, feed the big cats (that's lions and tigers!) or one of our favourites – try a bird of prey experience.

We have many locations throughout the UK where you can learn a bit about various British birds and get a basic notion of how falconry works. You can also learn about conservation, wildlife habitat and breeding programmes that may be happening in the area. Some of the birds you can visit include owls, hawks and eagles.

If horses are more your thing then perhaps you might like our range of horse experiences. You could spend a couple of hours learning the basics of horseback riding on the back of a horse. You'll learn some basics of riding as well as take in the beautiful countryside.

If you’d like to give a gift of an animal encounter for someone who loves horses we have some great options. Your choices usually include western style riding days, horse riding lessons, learning to ride for beginners and various pony trekking experiences.

Many people dream of going whale watching, or to see dolphins and we have dolphins and whales experiences available now. While this experience is seasonal and sightings are not guaranteed, it is all the more special if you do see a whale or dolphin. You will see the best of British wildlife off the coast of Scotland, Wales or Cornwall and hopefully bump noses with wild dolphins or whales in the area. This is one of the most exciting animal encounters on offer.

Every one of our animal encounters has been carefully thought through, with nothing left to chance to provide you with affordable lasting memories. We've searched out the best options available, on land and at sea, to ensure that you get some real life close up experiences with a range of great animals. Whether it's a day out in Yorkshire helping to work with sheepdogs or sightseeing on a boat looking out for whales and dolphins off the coastline, you’re sure to book a package to remember.
