"This was a truly amazing experience, one that I will remember forever, as I have a lifelong admiration for tigers."
"I had to wait a very long time for this to happen. But the wait was worth it."
"My contact with the Lemurs was my forth visit to Hamerton, on this occasion it was bought as a birthday present.
I enjoyed the Lemur contact very much; the Lemurs were very friendly and obviously comfortable with human contact. The staff were on hand to answer any questions I had, if you enjoy the company of animals then this is an experience not to be missed."
"The animal experiences at Hamerton is a once in a lifetime opportunity. I loved it so much I did another one."
"To all at Hamerton. Many thanks for a wonderful day feeding the magnificent Blizzard and Ladybelle. It is something I will always remember. It was worth every penny and its very special as you don't get to feed a tiger every day."
"I would like to thank Hamerton for making it possible for this wonderful experience which I will never forget (excellent best birthday present ever). A special thanks to the keepers who were absolutely brilliant and of course not forgetting Django."
"I had fun with all the different reptiles crawling all over me, especially the Boa Constrictor, it was great."
"I cannot put into words how amazing my experience of meeting a Cheetah was. Django was absolutely amazing, and although he was a wild animal he was so gentle that I felt relaxed throughout the time I spent with him. The Hamerton staff were fantastic and explained beforehand what I could expect from the experience, but nothing could have prepared me for the thrill of coming face to face with such a beautiful creature. I never imagined I would be able to get close enough to touch him but he seemed to enjoy being stroked, and in fact purred throughout the whole encounter. I was sad when my time with him came to an end, but I was presented with a beautiful collection of photographs which will always remind me of this wonderful day. Thank you Hamerton I will always cherish the memories of my meeting with Django."
