Discovery Bags

Planning a trip to us but can’t get booked onto one of our walking safari tours? Why not book to use one of our Discovery bags instead!

New for summer 2016, the Discovery bags are full of information and props developed to engage your pupils around the foot safari, offering insight and fun facts about each of our animal enclosures. Show students how long a giraffes tongue is or see if any of your class can hold their breath for as long as a capybara! Learn about the different ways elephants use their trunk, and all the amazing adaptations meerkats have. Take a trip to the woodland to spot the moose and try to find the oldest tree!

The Discovery bags have a different folder full of information, questions and props for each animal exhibit on the walk around area.

We offer these bags as a free resource for use by schools, however they must be booked in advance.

There will be a £20 deposit per Discovery bag, and once the bags have been returned, the contents checked and you have completed a feedback form, your deposit will be returned to you.

To book a Discovery bag for your visit please call the Learning & Discovery Team on 0151 430 9009.
