  • We had a good time surrounded by monkeys! We enjoyed to see than monkeys were in freedom! Do we recommend

  • The current price is 9 €/adulto and 5,50€/child. The Park provides about 1 hour of time well spent with that race of primates. Give us some popcorn at the entrance to offer them, some are more friendly than others, some are asking, others are afraid. Anyway, for children is guaranteed a pedagogical experience, as they have a direct contact with these animals in a nearly natural habitat (they are in total freedom), but at the same time have to learn respect. Unfortunately we were under the impression that the monkeys they were afraid of a dog Walker and that's not something positive ... But it could have been ... Negatively, I have to point out that at the end of the visit there is a place where you can watch a video about this species of monkeys, however, the banks were covered with dust. I believe that few people, after seeing them live, please watch the video, but could keep the place clean. Anyway, the balance is positive, particularly for my pup that can see the monkeys, including some still babies.

  • We visited the site late October morning (10 h - 12 h). Get you popcorn at the entrance (cash) then we give you safety instructions. You enter the enclosure and the path is strewn with beggars monkeys! It's pretty funny to lend their candy they take with delicacy and diffidence. Don't worry, they're not above getting you! Do not hesitate to give everything at the beginning because they are quickly satiated. Feeding is a good show and the trainer gives some info about the life of the magots. In short, we have not seen past the 2 hours of our visit. To do.

  • 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.
