 Lisa Gibson - Lemur experience   24 August 2017  

"I just wanted to thank you for making Josh's lemur experience yesterday so much fun. He's been patiently waiting until he was old enough to take part and we surprised him with a visit on his 10th birthday. He absolutely LOVED it! The zoo keepers Lara and Tracey were amazing with him and ever since he has been sharing all the lemur facts they told him. He now wants to feed the Giraffes and is looking forward to the junior keeper for the day to launch. If only there was a red panda experience, then he would be first in line to do this.

As an added bonus, we were able to get up close with the sloth for the first time. Our youngest thought this was her 'experience' and can't wait to get back to see him again!

Thanks again!"

Linda Aitcheson - Giraffe experience 7 May 2017 

"Went to the zoo yesterday to feed the giraffes, had a wonderful time! The giraffes are beautiful and it was such a special experience to see them up so close. The keepers are very knowledgeable and knew each one individually which was lovely to see. Would thoroughly recommend this (my son has also done the penguin experience and loved it too)!"

Kym - Giraffe experience  21 December 2016
"Hi guys, my family and I visited the zoo on Sunday for my Nanny's 90th birthday. She loves all animals and was delighted to find out we had arranged a giraffe feeding experience for her! It was an amazing day!!! The giraffes are such big beautiful creatures, and we all loved getting to meet them and feed them. The staff at both reception and in the giraffe house were all extremely friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. So, on behalf of myself and my family, thank you very much to all the staff and animals at Belfast Zoo for making our visit so special :)"
