Big Cat Experience

With this big cat experience you will spend the day with the big cat keepers and discover just how much fun you can have looking after Lions, Tigers, Cheetahs, Snow Leopards, White Tigers and White Lions. This is a truly unique and memorable zoo experience at one of the UK's leading zoos!

Your Shadow a Big Cat Keeper experience will begin in the Discovery Centre where you will enjoy a welcome drink. You will then be met by one of the trained keepers and your adventure will commence. You will receive a full health and safety briefing and find out what will be expected of you.

You will become part of an elite team who have one of the most amazing and unique jobs in the world! You will participate in caring for the lions, tigers, cheetahs, snow leopards, white lions, jaguars and white tiger. You will get to assist the big cat keepers with their daily routine - cleaning out, daily maintenance of enclosures and preparing food (definitely not for the squeamish!!). The highlight of the day will be entering the cheetah enclosure for a close encounter and feeding the lions or tigers by hand (from outside the enclosure).

The experience lasts for approximately 5 hours in total, and following your experience you are more than welcome to spend the rest of the day at the park seeing the many other animals, shows and attractions.

You will receive a souvenir T-shirt and a presentation certificate as a memento of a truly memorable day with the big cats! 

The price includes refreshments and lunch in Safari Sams cafe.

All of our gift experiences are presented in an attractive red case with "Congratulations - you are the lucky recipient of a Well Wicked experience day" written on the front. You will also get a DVD featuring many of our experiences. Experience vouchers can be personalised if required.

Review 9th August 2012
What a brilliant, fantastic day and one we will never forget. We both loved every minute of it and my wife is still smiling now! Realising that every experience is different and not knowing how much mucking out would be required, we were pleasantly surprised that we had chosen a day where so many of the cats needed feeding or had to have their medicines. Not only did we feed the Tigers but we also gave the Lions their medicine and bottle fed the Lion cubs, went in the Cheetah enclosure for her feed and played with the Leopards by giving them some citrus treats on a stick. Being so close to these lovely big cats was a dream come true. Both Zoo keepers, Jenny and Kate, were outstanding.

What we noticed on our arrival was how polite and friendly all the staff are. Already we have given out your details to lots of friends and colleagues and we are going back to the zoo next week with our son. A big thank you to Well Wicked Ltd and the zoo for the exceptional way they organised our day and exceeded all our expectations. Darren - Berkshire

Review 12th September 2014
Firstly thank you very much for booking the day for me.

From the second I arrived at the meeting point for the experience, I was made to feel welcome and was given a small introduction to what I was about to do for the day. The keeper, Steve made me feel like I was one of the team, allowing me to clean out the white tigers enclosure and get it ready for his release out of his over night enclosure. The experience far exceeded my expectations, being aloud to feed most of the big cats and at such close range and by hand was just jaw dropping for myself , my partner who was watching and also for the other visitors to the park.

I would highly recommend this experience to anyone, of all capabilities.

My only suggestion is that a form be sent out either from Well Wicked or from the Park to the person doing the experience so that they can fill in their capabilities. Whilst speaking to Steve, the keepers have no idea other than the sex of the person what they are able to do. I think if the keepers have a vague idea, they could plan the experience to cater for the individual in advance.

Thank you once again and I look forward to booking with yourselves in the future.

Kind regards, Phil - West Midlands
