  • So yes there are some kind of monkey that, at the same time he announced on the front page on the site... It's do as well for the great and small, the price is not exorbitant when compared to the circus or zoo. Personally I liked my friend too. The only downside for us is the fact that every visitor to the right to a handful of popcorn, it's cool, but why, two or three widely enough (I refused)... I think it must be to avoid like visit during the strong influences.

  • With my son we picnic and enjoy the air of games before going to meet our little men. Very well. Playful.

  • What a great time we had in the middle of the Barbary macaques! They are more than 150 to share this beautiful space! We walk in the middle of the monkeys and we can give them some popcorn to snack on! You can attend a session of feeding: vegetables and explanations on their lifestyle program! Very interesting! Fair prices: € 9 for an adult and € 5.5 for children 4 to 12 years old! We easily spend 2 h in the middle of the monkeys! Unique to share with family time!

  • 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.
