Primates | Welsh Mountain Zoo


There’s plenty of monkey business here at the Zoo!

In line with government guidance on COVID-19, we’ve made some changes to our Zoo operations. For the latest updates on safety measures in place please click here.

Primates* are our closest relatives in the animal kingdom and it’s easy to spot the similarities.

Take a step inside our world of primates here at the Zoo and enjoy a unique experience where you can find out so much more about our cheekiest yet most intriguing residents.

All encounters start at £85 for one person or £110 for 2 people and last approximately 20 to 30 minutes.

For our Animal Experiences terms and conditions please click here.

* Please note. At all times during the “Encounter” there will be a protective safety barrier between you and the animals. Inclusion of Chimpanzees in the Primate Encounter will be dependant on the behaviour of the troop on the day of the encounter.

Please note that during busy periods, Animal Encounters can take up to 7 working days to be processed, therefore we ask you to bear with us.

All participants will be required to wear of face covering at all times whilst taking part in the encounter. This requirement applies to both adults and children.

Thank you for your understanding.
