Join the staff in a centre that is not usually open to the public on this truly rare opportunity looking after the big cats at this Kent breeding centre and get really close to these magnificent animals. While they are safely held in enclosures during the experience, you will be only millimetres away and will even get the change to hand feed one of the cats! You will also enjoy a guided tour of the site and get a chance to chat with the friendly and knowledgeable staff.
Your session will start with a safety briefing, which is very important when you are about to work with the world's top predators. This is followed by a short presentation on the work of Wildlife Heritage Foundation, both in the UK and overseas. Next up you'll be guided around the facility and will then move on to the highlight – hand feeding one of the magnificent big cats. It's sure to be a powerful and unforgettable wildlife experience. The encounter lasts for around two and a half hours. There will be an opportunity for a few photo mementos as well.
Your voucher is valid for 10 months for one person. You are free to contact the supplier to book a date for your experience. Participants must be aged 16 years or over - anyone under 18 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or a guardian. You may bring up to four guests for a minimum donation of £25 per person. Because you will be working with animals and as this is an outside experience, the program will vary with the season and time of day. Sessions are offered in the morning, afternoon and early evening May to September, and daytime only for the rest of the year. The encounter normally runs Friday, Saturday and Sunday, although some weekday sessions may be made available if demand is great. Sessions are limited and subject to pre–booking and availability. Disabled participants are welcome; the site is accessible to all except in very wet weather when the grass surface may not be suitable for wheelchair users.
