Code: PDRUSP 9 month validity East Sussex - Alfriston 1 person

If you have a love for Penguins, then you should take on this encounter at the fabulous Drusillas Park. Spend your day at the park getting to know all the animals and enjoying the surroundings before you take a peek behind the scenes. In the afternoon meet our charming Humboldt penguins.

Our family of Humboldt penguins will be thrilled to welcome you. You’ll recognize these endangered species by their smart ‘dinner jacket’ appearance and unique spotted bellies. Enter their enclosure, learn how they are cared for, prepare their fishy treats and help to feed them. You’ll not forget this experience in a hurry; the memory of these intriguing characters will stay with you forever.

  • Behind the scenes tour
  • Health and safety briefing
  • 30 minutes inside the Penguin enclosure

What happens on the day?

You will be met by an animal keeper at the park who will give you a behind the scenes tour before escorting you to the Penguin enclosure, where you will receive a health and safety briefing. Once you have been fully briefed, the keeper will discuss the two different species, their conservation status in the wild and how the Park cares for them on a daily basis.

You will then get hands-on experience of preparing their food before helping to feed them. After they have all been fed you will have the opportunity to get lots of up close photographs. Participants are welcome to arrive early and stay until the park closes to enjoy other attractions and animals.
