Feed the Gorillas

Feed the Gorillas

Get up close to our charismatic gorilla troop and give them a morning feed of some tasty treats! Learn who’s who, their personalities, and all of their little quirks. Limited to eight people, you will have plenty of opportunities to ask questions from our expert keepers.

To protect our animals, staff and visitors, we will require all participants on this experience to wear masks, gloves and show a NHS COVID-19 vaccination certificate on arrival. We will provide hand sanitiser for all participants before you begin your experience and gloves to wear throughout. Please do not visit the Zoo if you have any symptoms of COVID-19. If you have any questions or concerns in relation to this, please contact our customer support team on 0344 225 1826 or by emailing experienceenquiries@zsl.org

Exemptions will need to provide a negative PCR or lateral flow test result taken within 48 hours before arriving at the Zoo, and may be asked to maintain a greater distance from the animals while staff will be on hand to help handle food where needed.


Please note:

  • Participants will not be in direct contact with the gorillas. Food will be scattered around their outdoor area and the photo opportunity will take place by our viewing glass.
  • Please let us know at the time of booking if you have a nut allergy.
  • During the feed, the gorillas will be separated from participants by a 3-meter barrier and all participants should be able to throw this distance.
