Level 1 Keeper Shadowing $150. Day starts at 9:00 and ends at 5:00. The person shadowing will get a chance to experience help in feeding, cleaning, training and hands on experience with a variety of animals from livestock, armadillos, porcupines, kangaroos, birds, reptiles and more. They will get to see animals such as water buffalo, zebra, Fennec fox's, camel and more.
Level 2 Keeper Shadowing $200 but cannot be done without level 1 being done first. Level 2 introduces the carnivores including the wolves and wildcats. Here the person shadowing will get a chance to interact with a lynx, several cat or wolf. The primates are also introduced at this level and this includes a monkey and bush-baby plus others. Level 2 also includes experience other interactive animal training. We ideally like to encourage both days as a package as it really takes a full 2 days to experience/shadow all aspects of the zoo!
Package Deal: If you purchase both days at once the cost is $300.
We also offer the person's experience on CD. Here we make sure all your experiences are never to be forgotten and you will have memories and stories only those who see the pictures will believe from helping with the care of animals, to petting a kangaroo, feeding the camels and holding or bottle feeding a variety of babies, reptiles or exotic animals!
Cost for picture CD is $100 for 1 day $175 for 2 days.
Attendee is more then welcome to bring their own camera and take pictures but we do recommend the CD, as this enables us to have someone their to take pictures of your experience, and that way we can make sure to get plenty of pictures of you and the animals!
