Get up close and personal with our awesome giants and then go behind the scenes, learn how we care for our tortoise groups, including how we incubate the eggs, then meet some of the latest hatchlings!

Together with Exmoor Zoo we have adopted our own special turtle conservation and education project in Guyana. We have announced a new conservation partnership and pledged long term financial support to fund the “Yupukari River Turtle Conservation Project”. Money raised from the VIP tortoise tours will fund this project.

Tours are at 2.30pm.

Tickets are £15 per person.
(Available for age 5+. Children under 14 must be accompanied by a paying participating adult age 18+.)

Please allow 20 minutes for this activity

Numbers per tour are limited, pre-book now by calling 01223 891308
or email your request to lintonzoo@hotmail.co.uk

All money raised by our VIP tours goes directly to wildlife charities,
the cost per VIP tour does not include zoo admission, which must be paid in addition.


To guarantee your place payments can be taken by debit card over the phone, (01223 891308), you can also pre-pay for your admission tickets, saving you time on the day of your visit. Prepayments will not be refundable should you be unable to attend.

Some of this experience takes place under cover and so is not affected by weather, but you need to bear in mind that the rest of the zoo is an outdoor attraction, if it should be raining you need to come prepared with waterproof clothes and footwear. To comply with our facilities bio-secure requirement, participants will need to walk through a shallow footbath (shoe dip) so please ensure footwear is waterproof. You must also advise us if you own a tortoise yourself, or if you have recently been in contact with other chelonians.

Children under 14 must be accompanied by a participating adult (Age 18+). Children under 5 cannot take part in this activity.
