Animal Visits to Schools

Exotic Explorers provide fun, educational sessions to your primary or secondary school students, whether you would like an aid in teaching or an end of term treat. We also offer some more interaction-based experiences for nurseries and pre-school age.

Our interactive sessions can help support a number of topics in animal studies and fit in to the national curriculum, and the students will get a chance to see some of our amazing animals up close. Exotic Explorers Directors Ben and Puri bring decades of experience with them, so you can be confident that your students will receive the most accurate and relevant animal knowledge.

Subjects can include Classification, Minibeasts, Adaptations, Predators/Prey, Habitats and Nocturnal/Diurnal. Scroll down for more information.

We can also provide impressive flying displays and live training sessions to excite your students' imagination.

Fully licensed, insured and DBS checked.

If you have any questions about our services, please contact us and find out what we can offer your group.

We work to the national curriculum.
Subjects can include:



Carnivores, herbivores and omnivores; vertebrates and invertebrates. Students will learn some amazing facts about animals and how we classify them.



Learn about the small and mighty. Making up approximately 97% of all living creatures, invertebrates are fascinating, and provide a plethora of important learning opportunities for children of all ages.



Learn how animals are adapted to survive. We take a close look at hunting methods, camouflage, extreme environments and more, to discover the captivating world of animal adaptations.


Life Cycles

Birth, growth, reproduction and death represent the four stages of the life cycle of all animals. We can show students how some of the more interesting creatures change over the course of their lives.



See how the predator-prey relationship maintains balance in their ecosystems. How prey is adapted to survive and how predators overcome some of the ingenious techniques.



Learn how animal habitats are as different as the animals that inhabit them. What makes them survive in these habitats and how we can protect them.



Learn about the fascinating differences between animals active during the day and night. And let’s explore the window in-between together.


Living World

Our world is home to a diverse range of animals. Immerse yourself into this living world and learn about what makes it such an enchanting place.

WOW These guys visited our school yesterday for our summer fair and I can honestly say this was absolutely brilliant. They had an amazing selection of diffrent animals and the children really enjoyed the up close interaction. The team gave all the kids lots of time to hold the snakes, ferrets, pygmy hedgehogs, fancy mice and their two gorgeous brother and sister barn owls (the stars of the show for me)! Lots of information and facts for children and parents. Brilliant day and a massive thank you for coming.

Ben, Puri, Carol and a selection of their incredible animals visited our prep school today to deliver 4 sessions to Years 2-6 and we were absolutely thrilled with the experience. The whole team were so knowledgeable about the animals and everyone (including all of the teachers) learned so much from them. The animals were clearly well looked after and all 3 of the team obviously cared a lot about their welfare and made sure that all of them, and our children, were always comfortable. All of the children had a chance to handle the animals safely if they wanted to, and it was lovely that some of the animals were free to roam around the floor space rather than always being held and/or passed. They gave us so much information and were able to answer all of the weird and wonderful questions thrown at them by the children. And of course the whole team are so friendly and accommodating. Honestly I've seen a LOT of animal experiences in different settings in my time and yours was by far the most educational! And probably the best experience-wise in general as the children had so many opportunities to interact with the animals and just "be" with them and around them, rather than a stroke and move on. So glad that we came across Exotic Explorers and already looking ahead to when we can have them back! Thoroughly recommend.

We are a children’s day nursery and today Exotic Explorers came to visit us with their amazing animals. We did not really know what to expect but their visit far surpassed our expectations and they were so professional. They brought owls, snakes, bearded dragons and rabbits and took time to explain about the animals to our children and allowed them to touch them. The owl even flew in our nursery. We are definitely going to make this a regular visit. Thank you so much.

A huge thank you to Ben and Puri for an amazing day! All the children and adults had the best time. Ben and Puri are amazing with the children and it was a great educational and fun experience. The animals are beautiful and so well loved. I would highly recommend Exotic Explorers. Wish we could do this all over again.
