Here’s a wonderful experience for younger adventurers that will give a first taste of the day-to-day work of our Zoo Keepers when you too can become a Zoo Keeper for the day.
You’ll get to work in the Children’s Zoo and Wanyama Village, meeting our Donkeys, Goats, Sheep, Ferrets, Capybaras, Meerkats and many more animals. Get to know them and learn all about their care and feeding.
Your four hour Zoo Keeper for the day experience runs from 10am till 2pm. You don’t have to be accompanied by an adult, but if you’d prefer to be, one adult may join you. Alternatively, they can relax at the Chessington Resort Hotels while they wait.
A truly wonderful way to get up close and gain a real insight into some of the world’s most fascinating animals. You’ll go away with great memories, but don’t take our word for it read our reviews.
Price: £160 per Young Adventurer or £288 for 2*

A fab experience!“My daughter and her best friend had been looking forward to this eighth birthday treat and it still far exceeded expectations! Nick the Zookeeper was patient, friendly and kind. The girls spent the day skipping between the different animals. ”

Truly Amazing Experience“We booked this VIP experience for our daughters 8th birthday and it did not disappoint. I cannot recommend this more if you know someone who is really interested in animals - it's truly a lovely and equally educational experience.”
