Post -13 Students

Drusillas Education Department provides Talk and Tours for Post-13 groups.  We take students on a tour of the Park and provide a 45-minute PowerPoint presentation on your chosen subject.  The whole talk and tour lasts for about 2 ½ hours and usually includes the opportunity to stroke a snake and a cockroach!  Following the tour, students are welcome to use our shops and catering facilities; but may not use the play equipment or go back around the zoo.  We are able to offer talk and tours September – April.
