Enter the lion's den or meet the crash

We've launched two amazing zoo animal experiences.

You can now get close to our pride of six lions or meet our rhinos. These experiences sit alongside our penguin and giraffe feeding experiences, which have already proved hugely popular with our visitors. 

We've made these feeding cam videos so you can see just how close you're able to get to our lions and rhinos on our experiences. No guarantees of course, they decide if they want to feed or not!

Lion experience £79 (£139 for two people). Participants must be 16+.

Rhino experience £59 (£99 for two people). Participants must be 10+.

You'll also see behind the scenes of the lion and rhinos houses and get the chance to chat to our dedicated and knowledgeable keepers.

Review by Anthony Cartwright, July 2017

"If you visit west Wales you should definitely visit Folly Farm and do one of the animal experiences. It was probably one of the best things I have ever done. Being so close to the lions was amazing. You don't realise how big they are until you get up close. Also the staff at folly are amazing, passionate and knowledgeable and their animals are well looked after. If you have children it would be an amazing day out for them. I can't praise Folly Farm enough. Thank you."
