Nile Crocodile Feeding Experience

Help feed our impressive group of Nile Crocodiles


Watching our Nile crocodiles jump for their feed is a highlight of any visit. Now you can be part of the action and actually help feed them from our feeding platform.


Our Nile Crocodile Feeding Experience gives you a unique opportunity to have a go at feeding some of our hungry Nile Crocodiles and witness their speed and power from our secure elevated feeding platform. This incredible experience is available everyday of the week and is limited to two people per session.


*Please note that a face mask is compulsory to participate in his experience. Children MUST be aged 14 years and over. It seems obvious, but we need to remind participants that crocodiles are carnivores and therefore will be fed on dead animals such as mice, rats, chopped chicken and fish. Gloves will be provided.


If you want to buy this Keeper Experience as a gift and let the recipient book their date, please buy a Gift Voucher here.


Zoo admission is included in the price for the participant. Normal admission tickets are required for accompanying adults and children.


To avoid disappointment we do advise that you pre-book your place, but subject to availability you may be able to upgrade your ticket on the day at our admissions desk.
