Primates and Meerkat Experience

The perfect gift experience for Monkey and Meerkat lovers. Take part in a one-to-one Keeper Experience behind the scenes to meet our Meerkats, Siamang Gibbons, Monkeys and Skunk.

COVID19 Update

Thank you for supporting the zoo at this time, this means a great deal to us as providing care for our animals, whilst closed, incurs considerable costs. 

As the office is currently closed, we have set up an automated gift voucher for you to add the recipient's name and a personalised message to send directly to them.   When the office is able to reopen, we will send the remainder of the Gift Pack to the recipient and it will ask them to book in their date.

Please note, that all our experiences, encounters, adoptions, tickets and memberships will have their validity extended to cover the closure period of the zoo.

Go behind the scenes and find out what it's really like to be a zoo keeper as you help with daily enclosure maintenance and food preparation. First it's off to meet and feed our Siamang Gibbons, Beatrice, Elwood and their 3 boys. You'll also get to meet the Meerkats and feed them a yummy bug breakfast. Enjoy a monkey experience with our cheeky little monkeys, the Cotton-top Tamarins and the Common Marmosets. All whilst learning some fantastic facts from our highly experienced keepers. 

What else is included?

Our keeper experience souvenir pack includes free day entry to the zoo for the participant(s) and one accompanying adult, a personalised certificate of achievement and a complimentary T-shirt to remember your experience.

When is it available?

Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 8.30am - 10.30am.

This would be the perfect gift experience for a monkey or meerkat lover, or even just a treat for yourself. Are you ready for an exciting and exclusive day out? Don't forget your camera!
