Shadow a Monkey Keeper

Shadow a Monkey Keeper

Shadow a monkey zookeeper for the day as they care for our Gibbons, Squirrel Monkeys, Marmosets, Tamarin and Lemurs (Yes we know what you're thinking...Lemurs aren't strictly monkeys but we'll let them off)

Be prepared to be used as a human climbing frame as you get up close and personal to our very cheeky Lemurs shadowing our monkey keeper with all of their daily duties including food preparation, housekeeping of enclosures and feeding the monkeys. Following welcome drinks in the Discovery Centre you will be introduced to a member of our primate team who will explain in more detail your mornings’ activities during your special experience as a monkey keeper.

Our primate team member will escort you on a walking tour of our rainforest building where our Marmosets and Tamarins live and you’ll also get the chance to hang around our Gibbon enclosure whilst learning all about breeding and conservation work at the Park. At the end of your monkey keeper experience, you’ll be free to enjoy the rest of your day exploring our Hertfordshire zoo, attractions, facilities and shows. Book your monkey experience today for an unforgettable day out at the zoo!

We are excited to announce our park reopening in June! You can now purchase your day tickets or an annual park membership. Online bookings only.
