Fruit Bat Experience Gift Box

Type: Gift Card

Enter our AMAZING Fruit Bat Forest with one of our expert bat keepers and see our bats in a totally different light!

This once-in-a-lifetime experience gives you the chance to HAND-FEED our Seba’s short-tailed fruit bats their favourite meal!

These brilliant bats are frugivores, meaning their diet consists mostly of fruit. You’ll be feeding them a ripe banana, which is a delicious treat for a fruit bat!

While you’re feeding the bats, our highly knowledgeable keeper will tell you all about this incredible species and the work we do to protect bats in the wild. If you enjoy visiting our Fruit Bat Forest, this interactive experience will take things to the next level – bringing you closer to our bats than ever before.

Your experience will last approximately 45 minutes in total with approximately 20 minutes spent feeding the bats.

As well as the opportunity to learn about these fascinating animals and ask our keepers any questions you may have, your experience includes your zoo admission, an exclusive gift on the day and experience certificate.
