Zookeeper for a Day

Experience a day with elk, lynx, meerkats, and more!

Long before the opening of the Tierpark Sababurg, your "Day as a Zookeeper" begins. Enjoy the morning tranquility of the deserted park and accompany the keepers on their rounds to the animals. Together, you'll check the enclosures and make sure all the residents have weathered the night well. You'll also assist with the daily cleaning and quickly realize that even small animals make a mess. In the afternoon, you'll support the keepers during the daily feeding sessions or observe them in action. You'll get firsthand experience of the important and responsible task of caring for the animals and their enclosures.

For 1 person: €109
