Camel Close Encounter

Get hoof-to-hoof with our friendly camels in this truly memorable encounter!

Drusillas’ resident camels Lofty and Roxy like nothing more than meeting new friends, and love getting nose-to-nose during a close encounter. 

Spend some time behind the scenes preparing camel snacks, get up close for some feeding time, and pose for that perfect camel selfie!

A camel encounter is a wonderfully unique gift for the animal lover in your life, or a great experience to treat yourself to.

During your camel close encounter experience you'll be invited behind the scenes of our Zoo, taken to our camel enclosure to meet this lovely pair and feed them their favourite snacks.

Your dedicated Zoo Keeper will be with you to answer all your camel questions, and help you get some brilliant close up photos!
