Plantasia | Zoo Keeper Experience

Book Tickets Online


Plantasia Tropical Zoo  in Swansea is an interactive, fully immersive tropical zoo experience - a hi-tech hot house boasting one of the finest collections of plants in the country. There are 2 climate zones, Tropical and Arid. These environments are meticulously maintained through computer control connected to the locally-housed weather station on the top of the Pyramid shaped building that houses Plantasia.

Your adventure begins as you step through a giant tree into a real living rainforest. Start by exploring the dark, below ground zone full of creepy crawlies and all those lovely creatures that lurk beneath.

Head through the opening doors onto the forest floor, where immediately you’ll be greeted by a 12ft Python, a colony of leaf-cutting ants, and a rainbow-filled pond full of fish of all sizes.

Venture further into the Arid zone where things start to hot up! Climb through the Meerkats tunnel to get a different perspective of their enclosure. Say hi to Lucy the Lizard, Kong the Bearded Dragon, and count the Egyptian Tortoises. How many can you see?

Keep exploring as you climb high in the canopy, interacting with Oscar the iguana, the marmosets and talkative parrot! Will you be brave enough to enter the Dangerous Plants Zone?

Crocodile Feeding
You’ll enter ‘Fort Crox’ and get up close and personal with the Caimen Crocodile friends, where you can safely feed them their favourite foods. Follow the bridge down past the waterfall towards Fort Crox where you’ll finally come face to face with crocodiles!


Birthday Parties (Children aged 6+):
A zoo party with a difference! Go on an amazing adventure through a tropical rainforest in the middle of the city. Get up close and personal with the animals and discover a variety of rare and exotic plants.

Jungle Escape (2 - 8 players):
Jungle Escape is a live 60 minute escape experience, perfect for friends, family, birthdays, team building and special events. You will be given an objective and to escape you will need to find clues, solve puzzles, and complete challenges.  

VIP Experience - How to Become a Zoo Keeper:
Join an expert zoo keeper on a tour of Plantasia Tropical Zoo’s animal collection. You will learn about each of the species, and what the role of a zoo keeper entails. One highlight of the experience is the chance to feed the animals at the zoo including: meerkats, tortoises, monkeys, and more.
