Go behind the scenes at our black rhino house and see the keeper’s yard.

You’ll be welcomed by one of our rhino keepers and given a short talk about our rhinos and conservation. You’ll then be taken behind the scenes in the keeper’s yard to learn about the work of a rhino keeper and you’re bound to see some rhino poo! Then you’ll get to meet one of our rhinos and have the opportunity to hand feed them, if they want to.

This is also your chance to ask our expert rhino keepers all about the animals in their charge.

Your rhino feeding experience will last at least 20 minutes. It includes a cuddly toy rhino or a mug to take home so you can remember your special day.

Need to know

Rhino experiences must be booked well in advance as there’s only one session available per day for a maximum of two people from the same household.

This experience takes place inside the rhino enclosure and only those taking part (or their guardian) may be present to not overwhelm our rhinos.

Our rhino experience is only suitable for those aged 10 or over.

Rhino feeding experience reviews...

"I was the only person on the rhino experience so I had all three rhinos and a big bucket of carrots all to myself. Feeding these gentle giants was absolutely incredible and a real privilege. Calum (their keeper) was incredibly knowledgeable and really easy to chat to. A huge thank you to Calum and the three beautiful rhinos for a fantastic afternoon."

Sue Gratten, Slough, 17 March 2024

"This is an absolute must have experience. We booked it last minute on a whim and had the most amazing time. Exceptional knowledge from the keeper and it was incredible to be so close to these magnificent rhinos having a one on one experience giving them scratches and snacks! If you decide to book I can guarantee you will not be disappointed!"
