  • Nice park to spend an hour or two wandering around looking and feeding the monkeys.Staff very helpful and informative and gave information in both French and English for our benefit.  more »
  • Absolutely loved the experience, the staff were friendly and made the effort to translate the health and safety in English and it was only €9 to get in with complimentary popcorn to feed to the monkey...  more »
  • When arriving, you get some pop corn, which you can feed to the monkeys. That's quite an experience. We were here as a couple, but it certainly should be great to do this with kids.  more »

  • My kids loved feeding the monkeys and the handful of feeding popcorn is supplied by the staff,a good day out. Free parking and a pinic area with clean toilets. The park closes for lunch,so have a picnic then. Rocamadour is a great place to visit too, about 3km drive away.
  • Loved it. Very tranquil.
  • I expect to see several breeds of monkeys. Anyway, these magots are endearing and a little shy. Animal staff is very friendly and engaging. This is not the case of the three daughters of the gift shop and restaurant. No Hello, nor even a look up on the person speaking. At 17:00 stack, closing for Thanksgiving holiday time, so that visitors are still trying to make purchases memories, these dear ladies gain throughout the store to put everyone in the dark. A little stupid laugh panache at all. I have rarely seen a more direct way to say: get out of here!

  • An activity enjoyed by children, in a pleasant setting. Good mix between education (when feeding) and recereatif. Thanks to the guides who share their passion. Above all, the conservation project is convincing; the monkeys are in their little shoes here, and with our visit, we finance backup actions.

  • Nice to see these animals in freedom not at all aggressive. Healers who are watching are happy. Nice visit.
