Meet The Tigers at Dartmoor Zoo
This fantastic experience is for individuals or groups of up to six people*. The entire experience lasts for around two hours. During that time you'll meet one of our keepers, have a tour of the zoo highlights, have lunch in our Jaguar Restaurant and of course, get up-close and personal with the tigers behind the scenes for an encounter you'll never forget.
You can enjoy this experience all year round. It is coordinated around the tigers' feeding routine so it's usually available every other day, usually between 12 and 2pm. However, times may vary so be sure to confirm well before your visit. Demand is high and places are strictly limited, so you're advised to book well in advance to avoid disappointment.
