Our keeper experiences are run by experienced members of our expert zoo keeping team and include the following:


  • Your session will begin with a safety briefing
  • You will then enter the Komodo Dragon building behind the scenes and into the Dragon enclosure with a zoo keeper for approx. 20 mins*
  • Opportunity to feed them their favourite snacks
  • Provide enrichment for them and watch their amazing senses go to work
  • Discover where they are from, and their special adaptations for hunting their prey
  • All participants will receive a special commemorative certificate.


*Please note: at no point will you be inside the same area as the komodo dragon there will always be safety barriers between you and the animal.
