As a teacher, you can become a tour guide for the day when you come to the park on a self-guided visit (without a Zoo educator). Our team will share the necessary materials prior to your visit so that you and the responsible parties accompanying their children can easily carry out the visit through the 250-hectare park. On the other hand, we also offer guided visits for a maximum of 35 students at an additional cost.
Option 1: Self visit with teacher’s manual or Option 2: Guided visit with a maximum of 35 students.
All School trips to Casela have to take place from Monday to Friday only and will have to be booked at least 72 hours in advance.

The Zookeeper for a Day programme is a wonderful opportunity for children to spend quality time assisting our zookeepers in different sections of the park. From food preparation to distribution, through the observation of animals or enrichment of their living environments, children will experience the duties of a zookeeper and will be sensitised to the protection of biodiversity.
This enriching programme is offered to children aged between 6 to 14 years old. During its course, they will spend the day with the park’s animal care staff. The programme includes meals, a t-shirt and a zookeeper certificate.
