Feed the Gorillas

Feed the Gorillas

Learn about our charismatic gorilla family and give them a feed whilst learning who’s who, their personalities, and all of their little quirks.


Your Feed the Gorillas Experience includes:

  • Scatter feeding our animals some tasty treats. Among their favourites are corn, sweet potato, and cucumber!
  • The opportunity to enter our VIP area and see our gorillas up close as our zookeeper feeds them, giving you an amazing opportunity to take photos of our incredible animals.
  • A dedicated gorilla keeper on your experience to ask all your questions about gorillas and how we care for them at London Zoo.
  • Limited to eight people per day, allowing you to make the most of the experience.


What to Expect on the Day

Meet your dedicated Zoo host who will take you around to meet our gorilla keeper and see what tasty treats they have for you to feed our gorilla family. Spend a few moments watching them feeding and interacting with one another; this is where their personalities really show!

The keeper will then take you around to the other side of Gorilla Kingdom where you will be let in through a small gate to come right up to the glass, see our gorillas up close and be awed by their presence. Use this opportunity to take lots of pictures and ask our staff all of your pressing gorilla questions.

To protect our animals, staff and visitors, we will require all participants on this experience to wear masks and gloves. Hand sanitiser will also be provided to wash your hands before and after the experience. Please do not visit the Zoo if you have any symptoms of COVID-19, and contact us to rearrange your experience.
