Everyone knows someone who is a sucker for anything small and furry, and because animal lovers are always keen to see their favourite creatures up close, we have a range of experiences which make perfect birthday gift ideas. Whatever their favourite creature, they can have a chance to meet them on one of our zoo keeper shadowing experiences.
They can spend their time with big cats such as cheetahs, tigers, lions, jaguars and snow leopards, spending time with their keeper, learning how they are cared for and getting the chance to feed one of them in one of the most intense animal experiences around. If their interest is a little broader then they can spend time with a member of zoo staff on their daily rounds, experiencing all aspects of animal care and getting the chance to learn everything you could want to know from someone who spends every day with the incredible creatures for which they care.
If you're trying to come up with a birthday gift idea for someone who prefers working animals, then a sled dog experience is a unique opportunity to spend some time with an incredibly well trained team of dogs and their extremely dedicated trainers. They will learn how the dogs' natural abilities are harnessed to create a team which works in complete harmony, spend some time with the dogs getting to know their individual personalities and then take a remote forest trip with 12 of the dogs.
Perhaps you know someone who has fallen in love with the meerkat, television's most popular animal star, in which case a chance to meet a family of them makes a brilliant birthday gift idea. They will enter the enclosure with the keeper and get a chance to sit amongst these curious critters, who will probably want to find out more about you which often involves climbing all over you.
You can observe their behaviour and the keeper will explain the complex relationships they have with one another and see them at play in their specially designed habitat.
With such a range of animal gift experiences, there's one which will make a great birthday gift idea for any animal lover.
