Visitors can meet beautiful creatures from around the world in amazing animal encounters; including lemurs, meerkats, otters, exotic animals, and more. The event combines lots of fun with interesting facts about how animals keep themselves looking their best and how they attract a mate, and can be enjoyed by all ages.
There will be a Guinea Pig Salon, where visitors can groom guinea pigs, and for a £1 donation to charity, visitors can make a Valentine’s gift for the lemurs and go in to their outdoor enclosure during the twice daily lemur talk.
Guests are invited to take part in a free quiz trail, finding facts around the park to win a small prize, and a variety of crafts will be available for children in the Activity and Craft Centre. The young and the young at heart can have their faces painted and, for the extroverts, there will be a dress up competition!
