Meet the monkeys

This unique experience allows you to get up close and personal with the Haven’s smallest residents!

Enter their enclosure with one of our keepers and a bowl of Marmoset food, and it won’t be long before they’re jumping all over you! Enjoy 20 minutes of feeding these fascinating monkeys while the keeper provides you with information on their species, histories and care. You’ll receive photographs and a certificate in a keepsake folder to remind you of your amazing time.

You must be 16 years or older to take part in the encounters

Your experience includes:

  • A 20 minute encounter with the Common Marmosets.
  • Certificate & digital photos on a memory stick as a souvenir of your time with us.

Please contact us to book your experience. We ask for a minimum donation of Β£50 for one person and Β£80 for two (entry to the Haven is included).

Although it’s not essential, we recommend booking in advance, so that we can provide you with a timeslot when the marmosets are most active.

You will be given a health and safety briefing before your encounter. Terms and conditions apply.

We did the marmoset encounter and absolutely loved it. The marmosets were really friendly and climbed on our shoulders and ate from our hands. The keeper, Lizzie, was lovely. She made us feel really relaxed and took some great photos. It was well worth it for how much we enjoyed it. We will always remember it.
