Animals are loved by everyone and provide not only a fun experience for both adults and children but create a great talking point for your attendees.

Frequently Asked Questions

What areas do you cover?

We are based in Ipswich, Suffolk and will travel up to approximately 1h 30mins from our base for full day bookings.

Please email us with your enquiry via our bookings page to see if we cover your area.

How does an animal Fun Day work?
We bring a variety of exotic animals to your venue or event.

Kimmy will arrive about 30 – 60 minutes prior to the start time to set up depending on the package you have chosen.

We bring a jungle themed display with open pens and cages for full viewing. We also display information cards to show what each animal is and some fun facts about it.

The animals will come out on a rota basis throughout each hour which we will put on display to show your guests what animals we have in attendance and what time they are coming out for encounters, each animal usually comes out for 5-10 minutes per hour. For full day events there will need to be small breaks in between each hourly encounter session to give the animals a break. This will be classed as viewing/ question time or with the Deadly 60 package which includes the craft workshops the break will be used as viewing/ crafts time.

The crafts table can be added on for full day events to our other packages please enquire.

Can I charge entry?

Yes, school fetes usually charge £1 – £1.50 per child and at large events you are able to charge £1.50 – £2.50.

You can either charge on the door of the petting zoo, sell tickets in advance or sell tickets on arrival for 10 minute time slots to see specific animals. Please discuss the number of people we can do per timeslot prior to choosing this option.

Can I choose the animals?

Yes, your animal choices will be requested when we send your last email 1 week prior to your event date

Please remember although children like the fluffy ones the reptiles and bugs are just as fascinating. A variety enables the children to grow up without phobias of these animals and respect them instead of fear them.

In most cases we are able to bring your chosen animals however we will make changes if we feel any animals are not suitable for the age group, they are unable to attend due to circumstances beyond our control or due to weather conditions.

Can we have it outside?

We can only do outdoor displays between May-Sep providing the temperature is between 18-25 degrees ONLY. We will also need a suitable shaded area or gazebo and you must be able to provide an indoor area should the weather not be suitable on the day due to the specific needs of the animals.

For full day outdoor events access to a generator or electricity point is preferred.

We have 2 x 6 x 3 meter gazebos available for hire which are an additional £40 per gazebo.

Is there a limit on the number of people?

No, however if we are the only entertainment at a free entry event and there is likely to be a large turn out please use a free ticket system or charge a small entry fee to prevent people re-queueing which prevents other people from entering.

We try to use a free flow system with and entrance and exit so if you have a large venue this may not pose a problem. This can be discussed upon booking.

How do I book and do you require a deposit?

Please send us an email via the contact page with your enquiry with the details we have specified. We  recommend you book 2 months in advance for weekend bookings and 1 month in advance for weekday bookings.

If you have passed the time limit please still contact us and we will try our best to find you a suitable time slot for your desired date.

We require a 50% deposit up to the value of £100 to secure your booking date and time within 7 days of receiving your confirmation email

Please pay via Bacs (online direct bank transfer) to our account. If this is unavailable to you we will take a cheque or cash as a deposit payment. All details for payment via Bacs and cheque are provided on the bottom of your invoice.

Your outstanding balance is due when you receive your last email from us 1 week prior to your event. Payment can be taken in the same form as above however a cheque will not be accepted unless you are an organisation. If Bacs is unavailable you must pay in cash when we arrive at the event.
