Birthday parties

Birthday Parties are back at the Lakeland Wildlife Oasis!

We are once again taking bookings for Birthday Parties for ten or more children at a cost of £14 per head, which includes:

  • Zoo admission (with 1 free adult per 5 children)
  • Party room
  • Hot or cold buffet

You are welcome to bring your own cake, or buy a home-made themed cake for £12.

There will be a range of talks taking place in the zoo, but to make it extra special why not book a private 20 minute animal handling session with a keeper for an extra £25.

For that really special birthday party, not only can the children have their own handling session but also their own meerkat encounter for an inclusive charge of £50.

Morning parties can start from 10am. If you book a handling session and meerkat encounter that would start at 11am, or 11.30am for the handling session only. Lunch will be at 12pm, with the party room reserved from 10am until 1.30pm.

For afternoon parties, party tea will be at 4pm. A pre-booked handling session and meerkat encounter would start at 3pm, or a handling session only would start at 3.30pm. The party room will be reserved from 2pm to 5pm when the zoo closes.

Please phone us to make your booking and we will ask for a deposit of £20 to confirm it.
