Hoo Farm Animal Kingdom

         
Telford Shropshire England
Description : 

shrops hoo1The 400+ animals at Hoo Farm Animal Kingdom will be getting up close and personal with visitors once again as the new zoo season starts in March.

Hoo Farm Animal Kingdom is best known as 'the Home of Shropshire's Big Cats', including the Servals Duma and Zeus, and Shaka the Caracal - Will's favourite animal. Hand-reared Shaka is affectionately described by the keepers as a "big softy who loves playing with us", despite the caracal - the strongest of Africa's cats - being dangerous in the wild. Visitors can learn about these wildcats during their visit, and have the opportunity to book an encounter if they want to get closer.

Will Dorrell said "Here at Hoo Farm we focus on education and conservation, and visitors can learn more about our animals if they come on one of our many event days, or 'Take a Walk on the Wild Side' with us." He went on to add "We introduced the educational days and walks so people of all ages could have a learning experience. For those who really want a hands on encounter, our experiences allow animal lovers to get up close and personal with some of our most popular residents."

For a special occasion, a visit to Hoo Farm can be enhanced with one of their up close and personal 'Hoo Farm Experiences' (hoofarm.com/experience / 01952 677 917). Customers can choose from a selection of 8 encounters, ranging from £80 for the Lemur Experience for 2 and £300 for the Keeper for the Day for 2.

shrops hoo3Hoo Farm shared its 25th birthday celebrations with a record breaking 2700 people.

The event, held in July 2016 opened its gates free of charge as a thank you to local residents for supporting them over the years.

The gates opened early as Hoo Farm Animal Kingdom partner Will Dorrell said, "it was great to see people arriving so early so we opened up and let the festivities begin!"

The day was officially opened by the Mayor, Councillor Rae Evans who met with the founders of Hoo Farm Animal Kingdom to congratulate them on the occasion. Councillor Evans said, "I was honoured to attend the 25th Anniversary event at Hoo Farm and join in with the special celebrations taking place. It was fantastic to see such a great attendance and very generous of the Dorrell Family to offer a free open day for the general public to enjoy." She went on to say "It is very uplifting to see how much this family business has flourished and I would like to congratulate them once again for reaching a magnificent 25 years."
