Book now

Our bear cub experiences are currently sold out. If you have booked an experience scheduled during lockdown, we will be getting in touch to rearrange or refund. Please email us at with any queries.

For a limited time only, meet our rescued bear cubs, Mish and Lucy, with an exclusive behind the scenes experience at Wildwood Kent.

  • Help our keepers teach the bear cubs to use their senses and learn how to forage by scattering food in their enclosure.
  • Help build trust and positive relations with the bears, which gives keepers the ability to perform health checks, by hand-feeding them a selection of tasty treats through the enclosure wire.

Not only will the time you spend with our energetic bear cubs help them to become healthy and happy adult bears, but all money raised will go directly towards their rehabilitation and the cost of their forever home at our Wildwood Escot park in Devon.

Minimum age: 12 years old

Participants receive:

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