Battersea Zoo is special because it is specially designed for children and employs a wonderful team of zookeepers who, in combination with education specialists, plan fun learning activities.

Aimed at people of all ages, keeper experiences let you enjoy a day in the life of the park's zookeepers, get close to the animals, and learn all there is to know about day-to-day life at the park. You will even get to feed and clean the animals as you learn more about their feeding preference and natural habitats. Keeper experiences are available for mini-keepers (5 to eight years old), junior keepers (from nine to 17 years old), and adults 18 or older.
The exciting armadillo experience consists of a 30-minute dive into the world of the six-banded armadillo Peludo. Aimed at kids 5 and older, this is a great opportunity to learn about armadillos, prepare their food with the park’s knowledgeable staff, and even get to pet them!
