Incredible animal birthday party!

10/10. The Ark Animal Encounters team was amazing!! My 8 year old daughter and all her friends had the best time! So many amazing animals, both big and small. They are clearly cared for well, and on the day all the animals were secured with pens and room to roam around and eat hay and drink water. And all children had an opportunity to meet them, learn their names, hold or pat them if they wished. The birthday girl especially loved the snake so thanks for accommodating that special request. Amazing, gentle animals, and lovely expert team who were very helpful and reassuring to the children and adults. Thanks again.

Brilliant for a 1 year old’s birthday party!

We booked fairly last minute and the service from start to finish was fantastic. Julie was friendly, professional and attentive. She was great with all members of our party including babies, young children and sight and hearing impaired disabled guests.

Excellent, prompt, friendly

Ark Animal Encounters arrived and set up promptly. They responded to booking request really swiftly. At the event they supported all guests ranging from 4 year old to 96 years old really well. All staff were skilled at assisting those guests with additional needs, wheelchairs, and neurodiversity. The broad smiles on everyone's faces were testament to the wonderful, enjoyable afternoon. Area cleaned well afterwards. Thank you so much.

Kids of all ages loved it!

Really friendly people who brought an array of animals to be held and petted. Everyone loved taking the goat and sheep for a walk round the garden and having a cuddle with the pig!
The chicks were also a huge hit.
