Rey the Binturong stole my heart.

There I stand, arms wrapped around the two-tone fur of an animal the likes of which I've never seen before. She seems to think I'm the best climbing frame ever, throwing her dog-sized body off my shoulders, over my head, and down into my arms where she cooes and wriggles, trusting that I'll catch her. My wife and I have... More

Recently visited with my friend for an animal experience. Although the animals are stunning. We found the staff to not be very engaging, one of which was rude towards us basically telling us to leave after are experience was over, although we had paid to go on the experience which isn't cheap! Due to being out of season. This was... More

Hi Danni Davies, I am totally and utterly shocked to read your review this afternoon. To be frank, you have posted a complete fabrication of events. I have passed this onto Tripadvisor - as well as the email correspondence you sent me. I will deal with your review in parts - firstly, you bought this deal through Wowcher (as do... More

I bought the experience for my 9 year old as is Birthday is NYE! My hubby then suggested we go on MDay and it was just lovely. The sun was out, the servals were fast asleep and stubbornly refused to budge from their beds despite a firm stroke and a nudge! Although cats and the sun what can you expect?... More

I bought this as a Groupon deal for 4 people at Christmas. After a mix up with dates/emails etc Hoo farm sorted this out and managed to fit the experience in at short notice yesterday afternoon. The children (all over 16 years of age) loved it. They enjoyed the talks and handling/feeding opportunities and have lots of fabulous photos. Many... More

The whole family had an absolutely amazing day, handling and feeding many animals. Our particular favourite being Winnie the boa with whom we all fell in love! The staff were great and we would definitely recommend this experience.

Great day, the farm itself is full of a wide variety of animals and there's always a talk, display or feeding session going on somewhere. We picked the meerkat, lemur and serval experience and it was excellent. First we met two hand-reared meerkats, one well behaved who settled instantly and one really naughty who loved to climb all over -... More

I went on March 26th for the animal keeper experience. Unfortunately I was cancelled on by a friend so went alone. This didn't stop me from feeling lonely as the team were really friendly. We spent the beginning of the morning feeding lemurs and playing with the meerkat's one of which fell asleep on me. Then we got to handle... More

Lovely experience on a lovely sunny day. The lemurs are so cute and friendly, Would definitely recommend a visit to the farm anyway, but the animal experiences make it even more special

I never knew this place existed, but I purchased a Zoo Keeper experience for my mum. We arrived and all the staff were extremely helpful, informative and understanding. We went around and were able to enter the cages of the animals and feed, stroke and fuss them! All members of staff were extremely knowledgeable and informative. Really really enjoyable experience!... More

I have visited Hoo Farm on many occasions, always a pleasure, but this one out did all of the others The Binturongs were so friendly, playful and an absolute delight to be with, all that and a delicious smell of popcorn emancipated from this lovely animal. Great and informative keeper made the whole experience brilliant. Highly recommend, a must for... More
