Walk among apes and monkeys in a natural forest environment at Apenheul. Opened in 1971, the zoo was the first in the world to house primates in open environments where visitors could interact with them. Now home to more than 30 different primates, including bonobos, gorillas, and orangutans, the facility promotes conservation, as well as love and understanding of primates. Grab a front row seat at a feeding session. The knowledgeable staff member running the show will answer any questions. If you're lucky, a curious monkey might climb on you.

  • TripAdvisor does not have enough green dots to give a score to this park! 5 are few ...! What can I say more? All the Zoo should be like this, even if you don't have a particular passion for monkeys, Apenheul worth a visit, you will discover the existence of which no animals were you looking at, and what about the great apes? Gorillas, orangutans, bonobos ... a day is not enough!

  • The park has a beautiful and cozy atmosphere. It looks neat. Of course, many dining options to the greenhouse. Where I don't use. Too bad parking should cost as much again and then best an end run to the entrance itself. staff was friendly. I'm not a monkey fan but found them yet fun.

  • פארק נחמד מאד ומטופח...מומלץ ביותר אזור הקופים החופשיים ..ומופע האכלת הגורילות..צמוד לפארק קיים פארק חבלים נחמד... 
  • Enjoyed our day at the park. A bit scary when we first entered the park and straight away 3 monkeys ambushed our babies buggy, but after they had licked up the crumbs they soon moved on. Plenty to keep the kids interested with lots of different apes and a couple of good play areas.
  • It was a nice experience to visit this zoo. The free roaming squirrel monkey's at the beginning and the tree top walk seem to be most interesting. Take your own food unless you don't mind standing in line for 10 minutes for a cup of coffee.
  • Echt heel erg leuk.
  • This was a lot better than I ever excepted it to be! It just makes for such a fun and incredible day :) would advise anyone to go there
  • Really nice zoo. Great for a family trip!
