the rainforest

Enter the lush tranquillity of a South American rainforest, where monkeys swing and play in the trees.

What lives here?

Peer into the dense vegetation for our cheeky squirrel monkeys and spot the capybara swimming around in the moat.

See the large family group ​of spider monkeys caring for their young and playfully clambering across their island forest.​
