I purchased a Half Day Keeper experience at Hoo Farm through KGB Deals as a present for my 9 year old daughter for Christmas.
She absolutely adores animals of all kinds and I thought it would be perfect for her! How right was I? Even though the weather wasn't up to much the experience itself was superb.
It is run by Will and Becky and they are really lovely people. They are very informative and very good with the children. They clearly care for all of the animals very well and treat these experiences as not only enrichment for the children, but the animals too!
We travelled up from South Wales and although the farm itself was closed we still got to travel around the enclosures and see the animals as well as feed the Lemurs & Coati's. Unfortunately we didn't get to go into the Meerkat enclosure as it had flooded with the awful bouts of rain but we still got to hold the star of the show, Jasper, the hand reared meerkat.
I won't spoil it by going through all of the individual animals that we got to see but we spent time with 10 different ones ranging from cute and furry, scales and feathers.
I would like to thank Will and Becky for the a great day and for the fantastic experience at Hoo Farm.
Visited just after Christmas 2012.
