It starts with suppliers

Our animal experiences are held to the highest standards, so you can relax knowing the animals you encounter are enjoying the quality of life they deserve.

Part of our Animal Welfare Policy is taking great care when choosing our suppliers. Working closely with our travel partners (and the Coalition for Ethical Wildlife Tourism) we provide regular animal welfare training across our business. We also audit all of our animal experiences, be it wild or domestic.

🦒 5 domains of animal welfare 🦁

The Five Domains of Animal Welfare are a globally-recognised criteria, focused mainly on the animal’s mental state. If these criteria are met, then the animal has the quality of life it deserves.




Does the animal have access to a healthy, balanced diet that mirrors what they’d eat in the wild? Plus fresh water of course?

Is the animal’s living environment warm (or cold) enough? Do they have enough space? Does their environment sound and smell like it would in the wild?

Is the animal safe from disease or injury? Does it get the amount of exercise it needs to stay in perfect health?

Is the animal free to behave as it would in the wild? Can it explore? Does it have the right company? Is it mentally stimulated?
