This project is using Flexible funding and will receive all pledges made by 11:39pm 27th February 2018

The Exotica's vision is clear, vast and hugely exciting, offering people, most especially children with disabilities ‘the time of their lives’, a unique day out and minorities such as those who are disabled a chance of employment. 

Exotica is a social enterprise that wishes to expand, we do not only want to change the world we live in for animals but also for one another too. Exotica is set to make a profit however it is what we will do with that profit that sets us like other social enterprises apart from the rest of the business world and that is reinvesting or donating the profit to create a social change. We will create jobs and opportunities for those most marginalised from the workforce, transforming the local communities as well as being a flag ship for future projects. 

The soon to be reality is to create Zoological Gardens with a difference, a Zoological Garden with its own Santa-Land, Jungle themed cafe, its own railway, the only one in the country to be designed from the outset for wheelchair users, play areas with swings for wheelchairs and a Glamping Site, set to attract visitors to a site located in Norfolk, not only providing a good turnover, but also providing employment opportunities for at least 30 local people and the opportunity for at least some of Earth’s endangered species with the opportunity to avoid extinction and those animals who need a permanent home. 

There is a shortfall in venues that focus most specifically in the provision of egress that will be provided by our project to allow adults and most especially children with disabilities the opportunity they need to enjoy access to all the exhibits and rides that our proposals incorporate.


What will your pledges been used for????

As already mentioned Exotica will incorporate three aspects in the one destination, a zoo, Glamping and a Santa Land (which could change seasonally for different events i.e Halloween or Easter) all run by renewable energy. Your pledges will be used to secure a site located in Norfolk.  We are currently searching for appropriate properties, the most appropriate venue at the moment is Twyford hall consisting of 70 acres, just outside Fakenham Norfolk and connects straight onto the A1067. Breckland District Council and English Heritage have carried out an initial pre-plan, although there are no objections at present on the pre-plan advice as Twyford Hall is a Garde II listed building, they would want to see careful planning of the project around the main house. In addition this property would provide sufficient space for everything proposed and enough land to expand moving forward.

There is a shortfall in venues that focus most specifically in the provision of egress that will be provided by our project to allow adults and most especially children with disabilities the opportunity they need to enjoy access to all the exhibits and rides that our proposals incorporate.

Whilst this is only the start of the project we hope that we can get the support needed. Once the land has been purchased, the rest of the money will be sought from investors. If you would like any further information or would like to seriously invest in this project a full business plan can be provided.
