The Ultimate VIP Experience

When you visit zoos, you can always enjoy a day as a member of the general public, or you can take part in what zoos likes to sell as VIP Experiences, or Animal Encounters.

Having done a number of the experiences available in the UK, I decided to try and make sure people were getting great value for money from some experiences and arranging deals with Zoos to book days where I can have a group of people doing their experiences, or in other cases, allow me to arrange my own set up days at their zoos and bring my guests for an amazing day out.

The experiences done with Zoo Trips can range from a small VIP encounter with one or two animals to a Premium VIP Day, which will include many experiences across the day. Then you have our top tier days, which I call Ultimate VIP Days. These are often Private Tours including many encounters with key animals at the zoo in question, and in some cases, it would involve the zoo being closed to the public for the day.

Membership to the club comes with a number of perks, and you get a  discount of at least 10% on VIP Days we arrange and sell.

Terms & Conditions

When you sign up to the Zoo Trips VIP Club, you have until the end of 2024 to use your Premium VIP Day, if it is not used by the end of this period, the vouchers expire.

Not all events are run by Zoo Trips, whilst some of the days are hosted by us, and agreed with the zoos in question, a number of our days are block bookings for VIP events the Zoo already offers, therefore you may need to sign a disclaimer with the zoo when doing the experience.

All VIP Club days will have a member of Zoo Trips staff on them. 

Zoo Trips are not responsible for you in getting to the venue. Those without access to their own transport, can sometimes be assisted, by a lift from a local train station, but it is down to the member to make their own arrangement to get to the zoo on time.

At some collections, photos may not be allowed to be taken at certain areas of the zoo, and at other zoos, some animals or areas are private and any photos should not be uploaded on to the social media. You are responsible to follow these instructions and Zoo Trips will assist the collection with any breaches of this by any of our guests.

You must be over the age of 14 to attend a Zoo Trips VIP Day, Anyone under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult, and within the age limit allowed at that collection.
