ABOUT ANIMAL ENCOUNTERS
Have a child’s birthday party with loads of fun, a school lesson to fire the imagination or a retirement home entertainment session with a difference.
We offer a variety of talks, tailored to all age groups, and the opportunity to have close encounters with live animals some of which are not seen in everyday life. The emphasis of each encounter is to encourage all present to handle the animals so that both they and the animals themselves enjoy the experience.
We can bring you fun, education, entertainment or all three!
Sessions are very popular at schools and play groups, homes for the elderly, Women’s Institutes, after school clubs, fetes and fairs, Cubs and Brownies, hospices, children’s parties and private functions. Anywhere, really, where the participants will enjoy the experience of learning about and handling different animal species. We also cater for people with disabilities.
We offer a range of animal species from snakes and bearded dragons through to cockroaches and giant snails to rats, rabbits and guinea pigs. See ‘Meet The Crew’ for a full list. You are invited to choose the animals you would like at your event – 4 or 5 for a one hour encounter. If you would particularly like to see a species that we do not have ourselves we will do our best to locate an individual and bring it along – contact us with your requirements.
Animal Encounters is based in Hampshire and we travel all over the south of England and into London. All our staff are CRB checked for customers’ peace of mind. Prices start from as little as £99 for a one hour encounter at a children’s party – contact us for a quote for your particular function.
