92 days to go to National Insect Week
Please book via the ZSL London Zoo website.
Special National Insect Week Bedbugs with unique activities!
The sleepover with a difference... Stay overnight in the BUG house at ZSL London Zoo. Bug-tastic fun for 7-11 years old.
Explore the zoo by torchlight and wake up to the sounds of the animals. Plus games, story-telling, talks - all animal themed of course! Breakfast is included.
Watch out for...
The amazing leaf cutter ant nest at the entrance, walking out on their ropes where you can see them carrying leaves many times their own weight, right before your eyes (please don’t touch!)
Huge locust swarm display
Cockroach sink (yeuch!)
Micrarium for miniature wildlife, like brine shrimps and Daphnia
Giant orb spiders on their webs
Cave crickets (look into the bubble if you dare…)
Weird naked mole rats in their underground tunnels
Incredibly beautiful moon jellyfish tank
See directly into the hive of our Honeybees
Discover why maggots are useful…
