Meet the Monkeys at ZSL London Zoo

Take part in our Meet the Monkeys, Rainforest Experience! Enter our living rainforest and meet our monkeys (and maybe spot a sleepy sloth!). 

We are excited to be safely reopening this experience, with added safety measures in place.

An expert zookeeper will guide you onto the rainforest floor to feed the monkeys and see what other species you can spot including sloths, tortoises and bats!

Your experience

  • Meet and feed our monkeys in Rainforest Life
  • Discover more about the amazing species that call Rainforest Life home
  • Opportunity to ask our zookeeper questions about our rainforest residents

What to expect on the day

This 20 minute VIP experience begins with a health and safety briefing from our friendly zookeeper who will then take you inside the Rainforest Life exhibit to the rainforest floor.  You will then help our zookeeper feed the monkeys whilst learning more about all the different species that call our living rainforest home, including red titi monkeys, lion headed tamarins, tortoises and bats!

Tip: You will have plenty of opportunity to take some fantastic photographs so don’t forget to bring your camera!  


To protect our animals, staff and visitors, please do not visit the Zoo if you have any symptoms of COVID-19, and contact us to rearrange your experience.
