Calderglen Zoo's animal experiences

Calderglen Zoo's animal experiences

At Calderglen Zoo we offer two types of experiences to get to know some of our resident animals a little better!

Customer Notice: Due to structural damage to the conservatory (indoor area), it is closed until further notice. The outdoor area of the zoo is still available to access.

Testimonials

Calderglen Zoo was absolutely amazing. My partner and I had been gifted a voucher to ‘Meet the Meerkats’ in person and it was an amazing experience. All the staff were awesome, from Reception to the Keeper, Heather, and the gift shop staff. Heather was wonderful to meet and is so happy to introduce you to animals and tell you all about them. A fantastic person all round. Will definitely be back again. The best day I've had in a long time.
