See animals in a different light at Rainforest Life, ZSL London Zoo’s exciting indoor exhibit - including an amazing nocturnal experience.

Enter London’s only living rainforest where you can come face-to-face with a variety of amazing rainforest species including monkeys, sloths, and tamanduas!

Then step out of the light and into the ‘Night Life’ area, where you’ll discover the bats, rats and nocturnal wonders who make the dark their home.
