Eight-year-old Alice Nottage won a competition in national children's newspaper First News marking the release of new film Jungle Book 2.
She travelled to Knowsley Park Wildlife Park on Merseyside, where she met many of the inhabitants, including a snake and some elephants.
Alice's mum Liz said: "She was surprised and excited to win, and it was a fantastic experience.
