Sloth Experience

Sloth experience

Enjoy the incredibly immersive experience in the Rainforest which is home to our sloths.

From their cheeky grin to their sleepy behaviour, it’s hard not to love sloths when they’re one of the most relatable animals. Deep down, we all have a bit of sloth in us! Now you have the chance to meet and feed our sloths at our Hertfordshire Zoo. The perfect gift for any close friend or family member with a love for sloths!


What will my Sloth experience include?

  • Meet and greet our sloths as well as getting a chance to hand feed them.
  • A tour of the Rainforest.
  • Available Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays
  • Duration: 30 minutes
  • Minimum age is 14 years old (must be accompanied with an Adult visiting the Zoo)
  • Participants will receive a certificate and entry to the park for the day

No open toe shoes to be worn.

You can purchase an annual membership to the park online here.

Our Gift Vouchers can be redeemed across all of our experiences, including our Sloths! Perfect as a gift for friends or family.

Your experience starts with drinks in the Zoo HQ, where you will be introduced to a member of our zoo team who will give you a short health and safety briefing before escorting you to our Rainforest.

During the experience, you will enjoy a tour of our Rainforest and enter the home of our sloths.

Our sloths will be ready for their evening meal and you will be given the opportunity to serve them their main course. If they venture out from their nest box and down to the feeding station you will be able to hand feed them (unfortunately, this cannot be guaranteed as they may be too sleepy and choose not to participate)

Your friendly Keeper will be with you throughout the experience to tell you lots of interesting facts about our rainforest friends. There will be plenty of photo ops so don’t forget your camera!

No open toe shoes to be worn. (if your footwear is considered inappropriate you will not be able to enter the enclosure).

Due to the close taxonomic relationship of humans and non-human primates, our primates are susceptible to many of our illnesses. If you think you may be ill, however minor the symptoms (for example: sneezing, cold-sores, headaches, skin complaints or any stomach complaints) please notify us before coming for your experience. You are likely to be fine to participate in the experience, however the risk to our primate’s health must be assessed and re-booking may be required.

Cat faeces also pose a serious health risk to our primates. Therefore if you have a pet cat, could you please ensure fresh clothing is worn for the experience.
