About Hoo Farm Animal Encounters
Hoo Farm Animal Encounters houses all manner of exotic creatures, including eagle owls, Burmese pythons, servals and giant African land snails. It was opened in 2010 by its eponymous owner Will Dorrell and is run out of Hoo Farm, where he worked as Demonstrations Manager before setting out on his own. As well as being able to meet the animals on-site, guests can also have the creatures brought to their event courtesy of a Will's Travelling Animals encounter.
