Amazing day
20 January 2020
Bought as a gift for my partner and myself for Xmas and it was the best thing ever! Had the most amazing day, the staff were all so knowledge and friendly and clearly passionate about the animals. Would definitely recommend to anyone who loves animals, it was so interactive, and the animals were adorable.

Beautiful animals

I bought this for my wife's birthday and we had such an amazing day. We met camels, alpacas, sea lions, owls, Eagles, lizards, snakes, meerkats, monkeys, lemurs, tapirs. We were involved in some cleaning, feeding, going in their cages which was so good especially when they climb up you and sit on your shoulder (not the camels!). The keepers were so friendly and knowledgable, and their commitment to their jobs was very apparent. I would recommend this experience as something that will be remembered for life.

Had such a lovely time. Keeper we’re so lovely, day went smoothly lots of animal interaction. Wether the weather days sunny though or not make sure you bring wellies or boots! And also bring a jacket and a waterproof poncho. It was sunny on arrival and the rained all day long. Had I have brought a coat I’d of enjoyed it a lot more and they don’t have any to offer. Other than being wet it was really great!

Thoroughly enjoyable day
24 April 2018
This was bought as a gift for my girlfriend and me as we are both animal lovers and the day wasn’t a disappointment! Easy to get to from Broxbourne station PWP is a surprisingly large and well laid out zoo for all the family, we were met on arrival and given our induction and introduced to the first of the keepers who would be looking after us, as we were there before the public the animals are just being let out after the night, they are lively and excitable at this point and we joined in cleaning out their enclosures and preparing their food. All the keepers were really friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating and we never were made to feel in the way. We met loads of animals and got to see many others (they don’t let you in the Tiger enclosure xD) lunch was provided and all in all in was a most amazing day! We loved every minute

Amazing experience
22 September 2017
Really great value experience. We got this half price and for what we paid it was well worth the money. We've been to paradise park a few times and really like it. It's not as big as Colchester zoo but it is a lot less walking and pretty flat, whereas Colchester is really hilly and hard work. There are lots of animals still and most of the enclosures are nice, they make the most of the space. The shadow a keeper experience itself was brilliant. It was really organised with a timed itinerary and it is a full day experience 9-5:30. The staff were so passionate and knowledgeable we were really impressed and learned a lot. It was great fun as well, we fed loads of animals, some we hand fed including the red pandas and lemurs.

Had an enjoyable day consisting of feeding the lemurs and red pandas, cleaning out the llama and alpaca enclosure, feeding an owl and having it fly between me and the keeper, watching the bird show and familiar friends show, holding a leopard gecko and snake, cuddling with some ferrets and stroking the tapirs. In between events I had free time to look around the park by myself so would recommend bringing family with you for the free time slots or even better, having a friend purchase the £99 shadow a keeper so that they can accompany you as I wish I had done to make the experience more enjoyable. Quite pricy but really enjoyed hearing about all the animals and stroking/feeding them

Amazing day out
25 April 2016
I am a big lover of animals and this was the perfect day out . The keepers were all very friendly and very informative . You get to meet a variety of animals, my best part was the hand feeding of the adorable red Panda, lemurs and coati . Got to hold a snake. Before we watched the bird show we got to hand feed a beautiful owl which flew back and forth between myself and my brother. That was amazing. You get to see the big cat feed and hear the talk at the end. You also get free time around the park. Highly recommend ,looking for my next animal experience.

Amazing day
08 April 2016
I was bought this for Christmas by my mum and dad because I want to be a zookeeper. I loved it! The day started off with refreshments, given an itinerary and collected by her first keeper and went to alpacas, then it was the birds-flew an eagle owl, small mammals-hand fed red pandas, primates-went into lemur enclosed and hand fed them, reptiles-got to hold various snakes and lizards, fed tapirs, watched big cat feed as well as lots of other talks and experiences. It was an amazing day and I want to go back again. Well Worth the money for a fantastic day.

Amazing
05 February 2016
I got this experience as a christmas present and booked to go on the 3rd February. From start to finish this experience was amazing. The park was virtually empty of visitors, probably because of the time of year, which meant that i could look at all the animals without fighting for space. I met many different keepers who were all experts on their animals. They were able to give me lots of information and answer all my questions. I got to feed, hold and interact with the animals which was incredible and something that i will never forget. Feeding the red pandas and having a lemur sit on my shoulder were my favourite parts but everything was great. It was very well organised and the keepers were very prompt with timings. I would definitely recommend this experience to anyone who loves animals and doesn't mind getting a bit dirty.
