Please note that weekend dates for this experience are fully booked until September 2019, weekdays are still available. Bookings are on a first come first served basis, we advise those with gift vouchers wishing to participate in this experience book their date as soon as possible.

This is your chance to meet the slowest and sleepiest animals on the planet - the Linne's two-toed sloth.

They may be in the ‘Land of Nod’ but they’ll still captivate you in their own mesmerising way.

Did you know?! This unusual leaf-eating animal spends most of its solitary life hanging upside down in the forest canopy. It carries out the majority of its activities in this position such as eating, sleeping and even giving birth!
