Primate Encounters

Primates at BCA Zoo:

Due to the current Covid-19 outbreak we are currently only running Zoo Tours and Meerkat Encounters. No other Encounters will be running until further notice. If you have a voucher for any of our animal encounters your voucher expiry date will be extended accordingly. Please accept our sincere apologies for any disappointment caused.

Get up close and personal with some of your closest relatives, meeting and feeding the cheeky primates that live here at BCA. Your experience will begin with a quick health and safety briefing before we head out on a guided tour, popping by to say hello to all our inhabitants. As you head around the zoo you will be taken in their enclosures to meet our Pygmy Slow Loris, the Goeldi monkey sisters, our three critically endangered Cotton Top Tamarins and our cheeky Squirrel monkeys who are always up to some sort of mischief. You will finally get to meet our Ring-Tailed Lemurs feeding them some tasty veg chips through their fence line.

This encounter is suitable for 7 years +.

Anyone under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult. If no adults are taking part in the encounter one free adult spectator will be admitted per booking.

This encounter will last approximately 90 minutes.

Sturdy closed-toe shoes must be worn to take part in this encounter.

You are welcome to bring cameras with you to take photos however BCA accepts no liability for damage to goods.

We recommend ensuring you are up to date with your tetanus vaccinations before taking part in an animal encounter. It is your responsibility to check you are happy with the vaccination status of anyone in your party.

T&C’s apply.
