Our VIP Polar Bear Experience is truly a fantastic and unique opportunity to get up close and personal with our four polar bears, impossible anywhere else in the country.

A truly once in a lifetime opportunity to meet our resident Polar Bears up close and personal!

This exclusive experience starts before the Park opens to the public, giving you the chance to meet Victor, Pixel, Nissan or Nobby before anyone else is even allowed in!

At Project Polar you will get to help one of our carnivore rangers hide enrichment around the reserve, which the Bears love to forage for and play with. In the house you will have the fantastic opportunity to come face to face with either Victor, Pixel, Nobby or Nissan (England’s only Polar Bears) as you feed them some of their favourite treats!

After the Bears have been fed, you can watch from the walkway as they are released into the 10 acre Project Polar reserve to enjoy the enrichment you left for them!

Following your experience, head over to Safari Café for a warming and hearty VIP breakfast which is all included for you.
