  • Activity well framed by many staff, the monkeys are very quiet which is top for young children, our 2 sons, 5 years loved, but had the arm too short to feed the monkeys, so frustration. Attention to parents it's less exciting...

  • 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.
  • Super !!!
  • The Park is neat and well maintained, hard to get lost with the markup and the quasi-unique meaning of the visit. However, the visit appears to be fast enough. The staff are friendly, available for any question. As for the macaques, they easily accept their little tidbit with gentle condition of being attentive to security rules and above all common sense. I recommend a visit with children for their pleasure.

  • The monkey forest is a nice place to visit with young children. Meet the monkeys is in a pleasant and shady. The path is well marked and easy to access. Interaction with the animals is done in a very discreet way and takes place, only if both sides wish. Neither monkey nor human are forced to approach. The Park and unfortunately also the snack bar closed between 12: 00 and 13: 00. So remember to take a picnic.
