£70 for two people, which includes entry into the Zoo

You and your friend will be greeted by a keeper and taken behind the scenes to meet our cheeky troop of macaques. Here, you will get the opportunity to hand feed the macaques and learn all about their training and the work that goes in to looking after these primates.

As well as meeting the macaques and their keepers, the price includes a full day at the Zoo, a hot drink in Café Lemur and a commemorative certificate.

Please note: this experience is for a maximum of two participants. Children must be 8 and over, and only one child per experience. This experience takes place 11:45am or 1:45pm everyday. Please wear suitable clothing, including trousers and a lightweight coat in case of rain.

Pre-booking is essential

Please note: Macaque experiences are not currently taking place until we finish making improvements to the macaque exhibit.
