We are truly a nation of animal lovers if the popularity of our animal experiences is anything to go by! Whether you adore your feathered friends fly, admire the prowess of the big cats, love your reptiles or think your dog is the best thing on four legs, we all know us Brits are suckers for a cuddly creature.

Perhaps just as well then that we've got a brilliantly eclectic range of days out, courses and experiences that involve all sorts of species of animal, from mammals and birds, to reptiles and fish. And in each case you'll be given a wonderful insight into their characters, natural habitat and habits, all whilst having the privilege of getting up close to them too.

If you know someone who really wants to get involved in looking after animals, we can highly recommend the zoo keeper and wildlife keeper courses. On these sessions you get to shadow a keeper during their normal working day, lending a hand with everything from feeding to training and structured play. Those who like the idea of a working partnership with their living things, how about sheep herding with Collie dogs, drayman skills with the docile Shire Horses or heading off on a trek with fluffy Llamas?

For an extra measure of adrenaline in with your encounter, how about the thrill of being pulled along at speed by a team of excitable Huskies? Or take a proper walk on the wild side with the mysterious and often misunderstood wolves? You can also combine wildlife spotting with a boat ride on the ocean waves when you go sea life watching in Scotland - our remotest experience day, but surely one of the most rewarding, especially if you're lucky enough to be accompanied by a pod of dolphins playing alongside the boat, or spot a Minke whale arching his bank with a leap out of the water.

In fact, anything zoological we've got it covered. What's more, with these animal experiences all promising close-up encounters, we highly recommend you take a camera so you can catch your furry beast of a lion at play, the moment the snake uncurled his forked tongue, or when you caught sight of those cuter than cute Meerkats standing on their hind legs looking curiously at you. And whether your day out is hosted by a keeper at the zoo, a wildlife expert in the forest, or an animal trainer in a park, you are sure to learn lots and want to keep coming back to try more animal antics and adventures.
