The experience is available for adults and children over the age of 9 years old, however children between the ages of 9 and 15 years old must be accompanied by a spectating parent or guardian. Please note that the spectating guest will not go behind the scenes; however there will be the opportunity for them to take fantastic photos of the participant whilst visiting our okapi.
Regrettably certain guests will be unable to take part including people with epilepsy; relevant phobias or known allergies; pregnant women and immunocompromised individuals. 
Whilst every effort is made to accommodate those with a disability or learning difficulty, due to practicality and health and safety this cannot always be achieved; please contact us for advice before purchasing.
