Review by Gemma Harper

5 out of 5 stars

The experience was faultless! From start to finish I felt like a valued member of the team. It exceeded my expectations. I interacted with so many animal and helped with the feeds and clearing out. As a massive animal lover the animals welfare is always on my mind but Paradise Wildlife Park are very much caring for the welfare of the animals. The stories you are told are heart warming and the keepers are so passionate about what they do. It was the best and most rewarding experience of my life and I did not want it to end.
