Zoo Photography Days

The best possible opportunity to see our fascinating animals at close quarters to achieve that 'pawfect' picture! Learn all about our Zoo Photography Days here...

This is an experience any budding photographer will not want to miss. As part of our Zoo Photography Days, participants will go behind the scenes and venture inside the enclosures of some of our most popular animals.

You will encounter characters such as meerkats, penguins, lemurs, sloths, beavers, capybaras, bats, and even our reptiles and bugs! Get ready to take a National Geographic-worthy shot as you come face-to-face with some amazing exotic animals (animals encountered are subject to change and not guaranteed).


Master the art of wildlife photography with our in house professional photographer, who will take you beyond using 'auto' and teach you the fundamentals of composition, lighting, aperture, depth of field, focusing and more.

By the end of the day you will be taking more than just an animal snap, you’ll be taking those wildlife photos you always dreamed of. For those who are more advanced, we can easily adapt the course and teach you some extra tips and tricks.

Don’t forget you will have exclusive behind the scenes access to some amazing animals! Alongside our photographer you will also have a dedicated zookeeper with you at all times.

They will be on hand to feed the animals, provide information on animal behaviour and answer any questions you may have. All of this helps you to really understand your subject and nail that perfect shot.
