Whipsnade Zoo - Meet The Elephants

Come face-to-face with the largest residents at the Zoo, the amazing Asian elephant, with this special Meet the Elephants experience.

This once in a lifetime opportunity lets you go behind the scenes at our amazing elephant house where you will get the chance to feed an elephant and find out all about our herd from an expert keeper.

£99 per person, 4pm/3pm when Zoo closes at 4pm

This 20 minute VIP experience begins with a health and safety briefing from our elephant keeper who will then take you behind the scenes at our state of the art Centre for Elephant Care. You will then help our zookeeper feed an elephant whilst learning more about our herd.

Tip: Please be aware that spectators are not permitted access to the behind the scenes area, however parts of the experience can be viewed from the indoor viewing area in the Centre for Elephant Care.
