Animal loving, husband and wife, Richard and Marie Smith, travelled all the way from Hull to become keepers for the day at DZG.
Marie surprised Richard with the experience for his birthday last year and neither could wait to take part after watching the promotional video on our website!
Richard said: “We travelled from Hull and both agreed afterwards that we would gladly have travelled much further for such an amazing opportunity.
“The staff were all very friendly and knowledgeable, giving us information on all the animals, their habits and their lifestyles as we walked around and we got up close and personal with tigers, snow leopards, giraffes, monkeys, orang utans, meerkats, penguins, owls and lemurs.
“We left at the end of the day with a gift bag of goodies, but more importantly with a day we’ll never forget. We would recommend this experience to anyone. If you’re not a big animal lover beforehand, you will be when you leave.”
