Working days start at 7.30ish you are either on feeding or projects. Feeding - there are a variety of different routes which involve feeding different species of animals, such as grisbok, lynx, wallabies, birds, or kudu. Once your morning route is finished and you complete breakfast, a jobs list is produced. This involves general things to be done around the park with the animals. afternoon feeding routes start again at 2pm

Projects start at 8am, they are what ever needs completing around the park. so a walk around the game reserve to find anthills, cutting up meat for the cheetahs, Or help mending areas of the park. Or if you are lucky a trip to the beach.
