Chance to get up close to Cromer zoo’s big cats

A new business venture is helping people get up close to the inhabitants of a North Norfolk zoo.

Amazona Photography Tours, which operate at Amazona Zoo in Cromer, are running special animal photography days.

The tours are run exclusively when the zoo is closed to the general public and photographers have access to specially adapted apertures in the enclosures to accommodate their lenses for wire-free photography of Jaguar, Puma and other South American big cat species.

Julie Mowbray, who teaches photography professionally, runs the tours with Diane Randell and says all levels of photographer are welcome and all cameras.

Ms Randell said: 'Photographers on our tours have commented that it's not just the great opportunity to photograph the beautiful Big Cats closely which they enjoy, it's also the interesting stories behind each animal which, zoo director Jim Irwin-Davis, chats about, which makes it special'

Amazona Photography Tours run from May on Wednesday evenings and from November during Wednesday daytime. The cost is �95 including refreshments.
