Get up close and personal with our beautiful, but cheeky chimpanzee family!
Experience a back of house tour, see where they sleep and additional play areas, watch a training session and their daily health checks. Our experienced primate keepers will share with you wonderful stories about our troop, while explaining all the details around the importance of training and husbandry routines.
If the cheeky chimps are behaving, you may even get to feed them through the mesh!
Please note, for safety reasons, there is no contact with chimpanzees on this encounter.
Please also note, in the event of Covid-19 cases in the CQ region, all chimpanzee encounters will be cancelled and a full refund will be provided. This is due to the fact that chimpanzees can catch Covid-19, and it would pose a serious risk to their health.
