  • nice walk that fun as children and the parents. We can see the monkeys very closely and even give them to eat.

  • This is the second time I come back. With small children after the children. The setting is friendly, residents in many places and welcoming. In short a good walk and plenty of things to learn about this so particular animal universe.

  • A great experience. We are completely immersed with the magots, who are smart, and so nice to look at animals. The forest is really well suited for them. It is an activity that I highly recommend to all persons being in Rocamadour or the surroundings!

  • 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.
