I surprised my animal loving youngest son with a visit to see the vast array of animals that Maria lovingly cares for and shows off. He was captivated by Vincent and MiMi the foxes, entertained by Desmond the sheep and awestruck by the beautiful tarantula that Maria kindly let him handle. Brilliant time that included an added bonus of Maria’s family history and Second World War chat which was worth the money alone!! Highly recommended.

All 11 girls were mesmerized by Maria and all the animals! Maria is very knowledgeable, calm and an extremely responsible handler. The animals were clearly well cared for. Highly recommend!

Amazing Animal Encounters were fantastic!! Maria was so knowledgeable, calm and organised. Great job including all the children and allowing them to participate at their own pace. Maria also took time to make sure boys and girls were included equally when the invertebrates were introduced so now my daughter isn't afraid of spiders or worms! Absolutely brilliant - thank you!!

We arranged a visit from Amazing Animal Encounters for our reception children instead of a school trip this summer. The children had a wonderful experience and were engaged at all times. I would highly recommend booking a school visit and will certainly be looking at organising another visit next year. Maria was fabulous with the children and planned the experience around our requests to fit in with the books 'What the ladybird heard' and 'Tanka Tanka Skunk'. Thank you for such a special and educational experience!

Thank you so much for visiting our mums and toddler group on Monday. All the animals were so delightful. The kids as well as the mums had an amazing time. Thank you for all the stories you shared with us. Our session with you turned out to be so much fun and educational too.

We were incredibly impressed with the way these amazing animals were handled and presented. All the children and lots of the parents were mesmerised, and even the most restless little people sat still to have a go at touching and holding the animals. We would highly recommend Maria and her companions! Thank you!!
