1st August 2018The Wildlife Zone will be welcoming summer holiday visitors from August 1st 2018, after a busy four months of preparations that included creating the huge enclosures, animal shelters and the central indoor display.
The animal encounters programme will include the new wildlife, allowing visitors to get close to animals, such as the golden eagle, reindeer, fox, ravens, red squirrels, barn and tawny owls. This is an exciting addition to an already popular visitor destination in north Buckinghamshire.
Exclusive Animal Encounters
As well as the Farmer for a Day experience, always popular during the school holidays, there will be Ranger for a Day experiences with the opening of the Wildlife Zone. Tailor-made to suit visitors of seven years and above, these private sessions enable visitors to enjoy a unique hands-on learning experience that’s such fun as well.
