Hosted by ZSL’s expert zookeepers, these once-in-a-lifetime encounters will allow lucky ticket holders to go behind the scenes and connect with some of the world’s rarest and most remarkable creatures, making a great day out at the Zoo even more special.
New experiences include Meet the Lions, Outback (kangaroos, emus and wallabies), Meerkats, Aardvarks, Rainforest (monkeys, sloths and armadillos) and Owls. These six new additions join Meet the Penguins, and Giraffes, as the Zoo’s exclusive VIP experiences.
Each experience will be a different adventure. Meet the Rainforest will involve hand-feeding the monkeys, while visitors who Meet the Aardvarks will be able to tickle their tummies, and those with a soft spot for meerkats will be in for a treat as the mischievous creatures scamper around their feet, all while learning more about these astounding animals.
ZSL’s Head of Commercial Development, Kathryn England, said: “We’re so excited to be able to give visitors the chance to get up close and personal with some of our most popular residents at ZSL London Zoo.
“At ZSL, we know that people love animals and want to feel connected with nature and the world around us, and these experiences encourage that, from lions to meerkats there’s something for everyone. Plus money raised from tickets booked supports our conservation projects around the world.”
Launching on 5 April, the experiences will run all year round, prices start at £35 and tickets are available now online at www.zsl.org/experiences
