Being a zookeeper may have been a childhood dream for a friend or relative - now make their dreams come true.
Becoming a zookeeper for a day
Imagine just you and a guide alone amongst herds of animals, enjoying a trip in an off-road safari vehicle and a genuine African meal on your return. Experience an early evening in the midst of creatures on the Serengeti grassland. Get within arm's reach of a zebra. There is the additional bonus of getting a DVD on the zoo as a special gift.
Take in the spectacle of an African twilight. Soak up the atmosphere of an early evening on a safari bus surrounded by herds of wild animals. Watch the rhinos, zebras, giraffes, and antelopes at sundown. Meet the lions and cheetahs lurking in the gathering dusk. Get ready for something that cannot be matched anywhere else in Europe. When darkness falls on a warm evening, it is the closest you can get to being in Africa without leaving the Czech Republic!
You can get closer to the wildlife than you ever thought before, meeting animals eye-to-eye, as well as getting to feed the elephants, smell the giraffes and learning trade secrets about the sea aquarium.

Guided tours around the zoo
Want to take the plunge and tie the knot in an unusual venue? Why not say ‘Yes!' at our zoo? How many newly weds can honestly say their witness was an elephant or zebra? Even the gorilla can be tempted to put on his glad rags and join in. Naturally, we can also cater for wedding receptions for up to 70 people in the Cheetah Lounge. Additionally, a wide range of services and meals can be handled by the Lemur Restaurant next door. To make your big day even bigger, try an experience programme. (We are sure granny will love the snakes.)
