Funusual Gifts Ideas for Christmas

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! The festive season is rapidly approaching, and the time to find that perfect present is running out. Take a breath before you go completely crackers, because Drusillas Park in East Sussex has the solution to all of your shopping woes!

Ideal for any gift occasion, Drusillas’ Keeper for the Day scheme is a unique treat for anyone who is mad about animals. Working side by side with one of the zoo team for a whole day, you can get nose to nose with nature as you feed, clean and care for a variety of furry and feathered friends.

For a shorter and sweeter look into zoo life, Drusilla’s’ Close Encounter experiences provide an amazing opportunity to meet some of the zoo’s most popular residents. You can have a picnic with a panda, take lunch with the lemurs, meet the meerkats, sip tea with the racoons, or even feed the penguins. For those who are feeling brave there is also the chance to snuggle up to a snake and tickle a tarantula!

Alternatively, the annual adoption scheme allows children to learn about the importance of animal welfare, without all the costs and responsibilities associated with owning a pet. Nearly all of the animals at the zoo are available for adoption and the income generated helps support the zoo’s ongoing animal care and conservation programmes. Adopters receive a photo, a certificate signed by a Zoo Director, a plaque on or near the animal’s enclosure and a complimentary ticket to visit the new member of the family.

Still not sure what to get? For all year around enjoyment, Drusillas Club Membership may be just the ticket. This offers access to the Zoo, Playland and rides for 362 days of the year. Gift Vouchers can also be purchased and redeemed against any one of the Drusillas Park experiences.

Located just off the A27 in Alfriston, Drusillas Park is open daily from 10am. For more information, please telephone 01323 874100 or visit
