Orange zone

Go in with London Zoo's squirrel monkeys and observe them in their habitat.

The enclosure covers an area of 1500m² and houses a breeding group of black-capped squirrel monkeys in a habitat designed to recreate the Bolivian rainforests as closely as possible in the centre of London.

The walk-through is open to the skies of the capital with no boundaries between the animals and our visitors.

This urban eco-safari has been designed so that it will develop and mimic the forests of Bolivia, the plants have specifically been chosen for their scent and fruits that will provide enrichment to the animals.
