Lee - Dear Martin, - Thank you so much for making Callista’s birthday a very special day. You and your team provided a fantastic experience to all of the children who came to her party and she had a wonderful time handling and interacting with all of the animals. All of the parents said that the animal experience had raised the bar when it came to children’s parties. Thank you again for providing such a memorable and fun experience. It has been a pleasure dealing with you from initial enquiry all the way through to the day of the party and I will be recommending Urban Safari to all of my friends. All the best, Lee
Lauren Wootton - Team Administrator - Children with Disabilities Team - Bedford Borough Council - I just wanted to take this opportunity to say thank you once again for all of your hard work yesterday. It was the first day of its kind for the team and it went so well!
You were so accommodating, and giving two of the young people private viewings of the animals, really made their day! One of them very rarely smiles but he was beaming when he got to see the animals!
you empowered and encouraged the Young People (and their parents) to do things that might scare them, like touch a snake or hold a stick insect. You are all very knowledgeable and engaging and answered any questions people might have had, some of the Young People who attended struggle to focus on things for longer than a few minutes but they were looking at and handling the animals for hours!
Without knowing the individual needs of the Young People you quickly adapted how you spoke to and supported them. One Young Person was supported to stroke an Owl, and after being encouraged to do this gently to not hurt the bird she did this by herself, to the absolute delight of her parent!
We have had so much positive feedback from Parents and Young People, and we will be recommending you to anyone who asks! Thank you once again for helping to make the day such a success!
Kindest regards - The Children with Disabilities Team
Jayne Miller - Urban Safari visited our Beavers group in Sharnbrook. An excellent service, very friendly, knowledgeable and very patient with the children. An amazing range of animals to hold, stroke, feed and look at. The Meerkats were the children's favourite. Would highly recommend. Thank you for visiting us.

Grassroots Nursery - Hi Martin, I just wanted to thank you all for the wonderful morning we had at Grassroots today. The children all loved their experience and the staff have all commented on how well you all spoke to the children (I know that sounds simple, but it really isn’t and to keep a large group of pre-schoolers engaged for all that time is amazing)! Thank you all so much. We will definitely book you again. J
Amanda Emms - We had urban safari attend my sons 5th birthday party today and I honestly couldn't recommended them highly enough. Very friendly, knowledgeable and patient with the kids.

Debbie Peterson reviewed Urban Safari – 5 star - Had Urban Safari for my sons 3rd birthday party, kids were amazed by the animals & the older kids enjoyed finding out more about the animals. Shame the hawk wasn’t available for our day & the kids were too noisy for the Fox to come out & play. Would highly recommend these to anyone

Lesley Neve - Huge thank you to Urban Safari and Special Kids in the UK for the fa...bulous experience. This lady knew exactly how to encourage but also give space and time for a little boy (black t-shirt) to get over his nervousness and finally touch the bearded dragons tail.
Lisa Chard - The children (and adults) had an absolutely brilliant time at our Family Fun Day with Urban Safari. They got to get up close to animals you would never think you would have the opportunity to. Very educational too. I would highly recommend them and I look forward to them returning to our pub x
Clair Gallagher: Amazing party today from urban safari!! The team we're so friendly, helpful and patient with all the children, the animals were the star of the show and all the children had plenty of time handling each one of them, even the adults got involved and handled them!!

Kat Louise - I just wanted to say thank you so much for today. The children at school all loved it and you were brilliant with them. A lot of them overcame their fears due to the excellent understanding of how to help children overcome phobias. All the staff loved popping their heads in too!
Keri McSweeny - Farnborough Technical College - I wanted to say a huge huge thank you to you and all of your team for the event on the 24th. The Family Fun Day was a huge success and in total we hand just shy of 1000 visitors on site. It was great to have Urban Safari there for the day and I think all our visitors loved having the unique experience of holding some of the animals.
Claire Louise Graham – 5 star - Absolutely brilliant! Thank you to Martin, Jane, and your entire team you bought with you. Amazing communication throughout the booking process, friendly and approachable. It was lovely to see the amazing range of animals you bought with you as well as how anyone of any ability was able to join in your session. Some lovely memories were made for those at the Epilepsy Society today. I would highly recommend your services to anyone out there looking for a fun inclusive animal activity! All the best from the Activity Team at the Epilepsy Society
Megan Paling – 5 star - Fantastic party. The kids, and the grown ups loved it. Thank you
Gill Lake - They visited my Guides and Rainbows on separate evenings and introduced the girls to the animals in a vary caring way that was age specific to each group
Excellent evening - and I even got to play with a meerkat.
The Avenue - The feedback from the families was 100% positive as you would expect because the kids had a fabulous time. One family commented on how calm the animals made her son feel and another that it was great to see her son engage with different animals rather than the ones from home. My children loved that they had lots of opportunities to hold the animals, especially the tarantula.
Thank you for creating some great memories for the kids.
Caroline Braid - Hi Martin, I just wanted to drop a line to you both to say how utterly fantastic you were on Sunday, you were the star performers even outshining the christening girl. Adults and children alike were utterly transfixed by the animals who were on best behaviour and all three of my elder daughters were fascinated by the tarantula “ best thing about the christening “ apparently. You are amongst the most professional people I have ever come across and I have already sent out emails to the children’s party circuit saying how fabulous you were. Thank you for completing our special day- I am now currently thinking of another excuse to have a party so we can get you back.
you were brilliant....
