Beaver & Capybara Close Encounter

Spend some time getting to gnaw our beavers and capybaras!

A beaver and capybara close encounter gives you the chance to meet some of the most well-mannered and friendly animals at the zoo!

The experience includes spending time inside their shared enclosure, and watching as they ever-so-politely take food from you and pose for animal selfies! 

During your beaver and capybara close encounter you'll have exclusive access behind the scenes of our busy Zoo, helping your Keeper prepare their favourite treats - these friendly and sociable animals love meeting new friends, especially ones with food! You’ll also have some one-on-one time with your Zoo Keeper ready to answer all your questions, and there will be amazing opportunities to get some fabulous close up shots.
