Placement Details

Work Experience can take place with either the Road Safari Reserves team, the Elephant team, Carnivores Team, or Animal Encounters team in the Foot Safari, and there’s a whole range of things you could be doing, including:

  • Animal husbandry
  • Feeding
  • Preparing feeds
  • Enriching the animals’ environment
  • Interacting with customers

These educational placements are unpaid and we can’t offer to refund any expenses you incur like travel costs.

These placements are only available to students who are at least 18 years of age, on a relevant academic course and able to undertake a placement of at least 12 weeks in length.

Under 18s wanting to gain practical experience may wish to consider our holiday workshops programme. We can only take on a limited number of students at any time so please book early as places are filled quickly.
