What to consider when choosing an animal themed party venue

Animal themed party venues are great for kids. There’s so much to learn and gain when it comes to various characteristics of animals. They’re great for parents too as the kids become so engrossed that the hours simply fly by! Remember to find a venue that is convenient for both you and your guests to get to. Dairy farms offer guided tours of the dairy farm and show the kids how dairy farming works. Most animal themed party venues also have play areas, jungle gyms, sand pits, lapas and more to make your experience comfortable and memorable. Most importantly, make sure your child is a lover of animals! Have a look at what each party venue offers in terms of party accessories and extra, tableware and catering. Be sure to know exactly what’s included in the price you’re paying.

Mobile petting zoos and petting zoo party venues

These are particularly popular with little kids and toddlers. They’ll be delighted to be given a chance to touch and feed the rabbits, goats, chickens, ducks and more. Be sure to take some animal feed with or you may purchase at the venue as well. These zoos and venues often have a nice play area for the kids so those that aren't into animals have something else to do as well. You’ll find animal themed day trip outing venues on our site too.

Reptile shows for the fearless!

Mobile reptile shows are interesting and educational. Your kids will get to touch and hold some of the reptiles (yikes!) as well as learn a whole lot about their habits. Companies will come out to your home or chosen venue to do a show. Kids will interact with animals such as Caiman Crocodile, Snakes, Tarantulas, Chinchilla, Hairless Rat, Blue-Tongue Skink, Tenrec and more. Be brave mommies!

Pony rides and pony hire

Possibly the cutest animal hire there is around, ponies are available to hire for parties and special events. Shetland ponies will have everyone wanting more than one turn for a ride. Party venues with pony rides offer amply space, country-style and serene surroundings. You can also find horse riding lessons by clicking here.
