The Red Panda Experience launched

Would you like to meet a Red Panda up close?

Alex Rooney with Red Panda Paradise Park Keeper Louise Hobin with Red Panda

This fantastic special face to face, interactive meet and greet is with two of our wonderful Red Pandas.

You can buy this amazing experience for yourself or for a loved one or friend. If this is a gift, you will receive an ‘Experience Certificate’ to give as a present. This can then be redeemed when they book their experience for a date to be arranged with us.


  • Entry into Paradise Park*
  • Each experience session typically lasts thirty minutes.
  • An introductory briefing by one of our Red Panda Keepers
  • Then the really exciting bit… it’s off to the enclosure where you will come face to face with these wonderful Red Pandas. You will be able to hand-feed, stroke, take photos, and maybe one will even sit on your lap!
  • Opportunity to ask our Keepers any questions you may have.
  • You will be given a complimentary drink voucher to use in one of the Park’s cafes.
  • You can then enjoy the Park for that day and before you leave you will receive a certificate as a memento of your experience.
  • Included in the price, Paradise Park makes a £25 donation to the Red Panda Network for each Red Panda Experience booked. The Red Panda Network is committed to the conservation of wild Red Pandas and their habitat through the education and empowerment of local communities.

It’s an amazing experience, so don’t forget your camera!

*For children aged 10-15 years, accompanying spectating parent/guardian allowed free entry to the Park and can watch from the public viewing area. If the parent/guardian wants to join in the experience in the enclosure, then you would have to pay the ‘two person’ price.

The cost is £150 for one person (£25 donation included) or £250 for two people at the same time (£50 donation included).

Please note: If for any reason, we cannot run the Red Panda Experience we will let you know in advance and offer another date.


The Paradise Park meet and greet experience is available for adults and children over the age of 10 years, however please note, that children between the ages of 10 to 15 years old must be accompanied by a spectating parent/guardian. Wheelchair users can take part in the experience. Please see restrictions below.


Regrettably certain guests will be unable to take part including people with relevant phobias or known allergies; pregnant women; and immunocompromised individuals.

Shannon Workman Red Panda Experience
“The panda experience is amazing to see them close up and have them sit on your lap is such a buzz. I have fed red pandas in many zoo’s but it’s my first real close up, hands on encounter and I would do it again in a heartbeat. ***** a 5 star experience  (if I could give 10 I would). A real VIP experience and keepers are very informative, friendly and willing to take photos and video which is a bonus – I couldn’t be happier” From Shannon Workman
