about us

Jungle Juniors is a small family run business, based in Hertfordshire, that gives children of all ages, the opportunity to get up close and personal to an array of reptiles, amphibians and creepy crawlies! Whether its school and nursery visits, birthday parties or special events, Jungle Juniors is guaranteed to bring fascination, education and fun!

Jungle Juniors was set up by sisters Jessica and Lucy May In early 2017. Both sisters had always been passionate about animals, especially reptiles, and after working with both animals and children, they decided to combine the two! Lucys' parter Josh, also a reptile enthusiast, joined the business and it has continued to grow!

Jungle juniors is fully licensed, insured and all staff are d.b.s approved.

All of the animals you see on the website and at events are our pets and very much part of the our family. Their welfare is our top priority and therefore we are very conscious of the amount they are handled and transported. we rotate which animals we bring along so they are not repeatedly attending events.




Our Services


Birthday Parties

 A Jungle Juniors party will be a party that your child remembers for years! 

Perfect for children 4years+, our interactive parties allow the children to touch and handle a range of interesting animals, whilst also learning some fascinating facts!

A standard party is 1 hour although this can be extended to a max of 2 hours.

(For children under 4years, we offer 30minute parties)

School and nursery visits


Jungle Juniors offer interactive school and nursery visits for children of all ages (pre-school-secondry) adapting the educational aspect depending on age etc. The children will learn about animals they're not likely to have seen before, as well as others they will be more familiar with.

The children will learn about where each animal originates from, its natural habitat, behaviour and diet! 

If the children are comfortable they are then given the opportunity to touch and handle the animals with one on one supervision and guidance.


special Events

Dependant on weather, we are able to attend fetes, open days and other special events, with a selection of the animals.



“Jungle Juniors came today for my sons 5th birthday. They were amazing! We had children from 6 months to 11 years old. All the children and adults throughly enjoyed seeing the animals and being able to get hands on. It was informative and very age appropriate to keep them entertained. Thank you so much for giving my son and his friends something to talk about and create memories for years to come!”
