Our Explorer’s Club is a week-long summer programme for children aged 7 to 11. Combining classroom learning, hands-on activities and behind-the-scenes access in the zoo, this is a ZOOPER way for kids to learn about conservation and wildlife in a fun and interactive setting.
Little explorers can enjoy:

- trails around the zoo

- meeting the zoo keepers
