Gelada Experience

Get the chance to experience unrivalled, behind the scenes access and get up-close to the last of the grazing primates!

Your behind the scenes encounter will last approximately 30 minutes and include:

  • Free admission to Wild Place Project for the participant and a guest
  • Meeting our group of gelada in their purpose-built enclosure, Gelada Rocks
  • The thrilling chance to help the keepers scatter the gelada’s feed before watching this unique primate, only found in the Ethiopian Highlands, enjoy their food from only inches away!
  • The opportunity to learn about the species and ask our knowledgeable keepers all about our impressive group of gelada.

By buying a Gelada Experience, not only will it be a day to remember but you will also be contributing to our conservation work both here and around the world, helping to save animals from extinction.

The experience is available for adults and children over the age of 12 years old, however children between the ages of 12 and 15 years old must be accompanied by a spectating parent or guardian. Please note that the spectating guest will not go behind the scenes; however there will be the opportunity for them to take photos of the participant whilst visiting our gelada.
Regrettably certain guests will be unable to take part including people with epilepsy; relevant phobias or known allergies; pregnant women and immunocompromised individuals. 
Whilst every effort is made to accommodate those with a disability or learning difficulty, due to practicality and health and safety this cannot always be achieved; please contact us for advice before purchasing.
