About Us

Berkshire Reptile Rescue was set up in 1996 with the aim to take in, rehabilitate and rehome hundreds of unwanted reptiles. Due to a lack of funding, we decided to expand from just a rescue and that’s when we created Berkshire Reptile Encounters.

Berkshire Reptile Encounters provides reptile visits and reptile handling to both individuals, businesses, learning industries and much more. We regularly carry out reptile events for schools, fetes, birthday and other groups. This is sessions are aimed at educate children and others about reptiles and other exotic animals.
