Go wild with an outdoor animal experience

The warm weather is the ideal opportunity for an amazing, educational and ethical animal experience in your garden or at a school fete or event.

Here’s how it works.

1. Book a date

Do your children have a summer birthday? Maybe you’re helping to organise a school fete or event? Or looking for fresh ideas for a care home?

Outdoor animal experiences are great way to celebrate the sunshine! They can be booked from late spring to early autumn, as long it’s still warm enough for everyone (animals included!) to be comfortable outside.

We’re prepared for unpredictable weather (this is England, after all!) and will bring along a gazebo for shelter and shade. This can have the sides up for extra wind protection. Our kit box also includes folding tables, rugs, and travel heat pads for the reptiles.

So even if summer is a wash out, your event won’t be!

2. Choose your favourite animals

Lion Learners offers children and adults the chance to meet and handle a wide range of animals from around the world. This might include snakes, lizards, tortoises, rabbits, guinea pigs, pygmy hedgehog, rats, giant millipedes, tarantula, scorpion, giant snails and bugs.

If there are particular favourites that you, or your children, would you’d love to meet, let us know and we’ll do our best to accommodate.

3. Relax and enjoy the show!

Once your booking has been confirmed, you can relax as we’ll take care of everything.

We bring all the equipment that is needed on the day, set up quickly and efficiently, and leave no mess. We provide pens for the rabbits, guinea pigs and tortoise, and travel tanks for lizards, snakes and minibeasts.

During the session, children and attendees will have the chance to meet and hold the animals, even the more exotics ones!  They can also often feed some of the animals, which is always popular.

It’s an unforgettable, exciting experience that is great for all ages!

Caring for our animals

Animal welfare is at the heart of everything we do. Many of our animals have been rescued from neglect or adopted from people who can no longer care for them. The animals live with their presenter in special habitats with the best possible enrichment. This encourages stimulation and natural behaviours. By living in our homes, we are able to form exceptionally strong bonds with the animals. It also lets us keep a very close eye on them to make sure they are happy, healthy and willing to socialise. It’s crucial that our animals’ needs are met and they are comfortable in any situation.

We carefully pick the species we choose to share our lives with, to ensure that we are able to meet their needs. This is why you won’t find us travelling with animals such as meerkats or racoons.

When you meet us, it will quickly become obvious how much we love our animals. We hope you will love them as much as we do!
