Wildwood Bear Experiences are a unique opportunity to meet and learn all about Wildwood’s two rescued bears with exclusive behind the scenes access. Walk through the bears’ enclosure to scatter a feed and help our keepers teach the bear cubs to use their senses and learn how to forage in their new home. You will then go on to meet the bears and give them a tasty treat. Then let them out into their enclosure, where they will sniff out and hunt down the scattered food. Gift vouchers are also available here.

Minimum age: 12yrs.

Participants receive:

  • Park entry for the day
  • 30 minute Bear Experience with a talk from our keepers and the chance to feed the bears
  • £5 Cafe voucher (one per person)
  • Certificate for each participant
