Live out your dream of becoming an animal keeper with the Half Day Animal Keeper Experience at Hoo Farm for Two.
Nestled away in 32 acres of woodland and paddocks in the heart of rural Shropshire, Hoo Farm Animal Kingdom is a small family run zoo located on the outskirts of Telford. With animals such as meerkats, lemurs, snakes and owls and even African wildcats, the zoo is a fantastic day out for people of all ages.
This Half Day Animal Keeper experience allows anyone from the age of 6-years-old and upwards the chance to meet and come face-to-face with a wide-variety of incredible animals, including servals, lemurs, meerkats, owls, reptiles, hedgehogs and even a giant tortoise.
