Step into the Heart of Herpetofauna
The Reptile Academy is pleased to have opened our brand new, state of the art exotic species animal management facility 'REACH' (Reptile Education & Activity Centre for Herpetofauna) in Dorset, UK. For the first time, we can welcome in visitors and showcase a more diverse array of species, their custom enclosures and our pro-welfare ethos like never before.
Please note that we are a working animal management facility, offering members of the public the exciting opportunity to visit behind the scenes and step into the shoes of a reptile ranger. All general admission and experience visits are on a pre-booking basis with a limited maximum capacity of guests each day to maintain our visitor experience and high animal welfare standards. We're also based on a Farm with regular school visits, so pre-booking is essential for safeguarding of all who attend.
Use the BOOK NOW link to select your preferred activity from our list of options and choose a date and time to visit. Our visitor experience team will confirm your booking and send a link to purchase your tickets via SMS or E-mail. This method of pre-booking allows us to limit visitor numbers and keep experience costs as low as possible. Thank you.
Options for everybody
The Reptile Academy pride ourselves on the ability to offer a range of sessions to suit a wide range of individuals, groups and organisations.
