Noah's Ark Zoo Farm hosted a primate weekend on Saturday and Sunday, where guests took part in a trail focusing on conservation and could explore the zoo.

Visitors were able to see the zoo's gibbons, ring-tailed lemurs, ruffed lemurs, cotton-topped tamarins and common marmosets.

Youngsters took part in face painting, enrichment making, meerkat painting, camel feeding and specialist gibbon talks.

Money was raised for charity Kalaweit, whose objective is to save the gibbons of Indonesia and their habitat.

The zoo celebrated its 20th anniversary earlier this year.
