Amazing experience- would highly recommend it. The staff answered all my questions and were very knowledgeable. I would recommend booking over the winter as you get cuddles with them. Would 100% book again.

Hi Helga, Thanks for your question - we don't offer Raccoon Dog experiences any longer. They are sometimes included in our Binturong Experience however and this is £150 for 2 people. Thanks Will
