Spent a good few hours here. The monkeys are so close to you, in an open environment. Seen 2 very young baby monkeys. Well worth a visit. Nice big playground for kids more »
Visited a short while back and loved it, the walk is shorter than expected but you can walk round and do as many laps of the whole place as you want. Toilets were to an excellent standard. Was exciting to be do close to the monkeys! It was fascinating watching their behaviour. The staff fully explain why they do everything and help you understand the monkeys more. Was a fantastic and interesting day out.
Really pleased we visited. The monkeys were really interesting to watch and the staff were passionate about them. They could identify all the monkeys. We saw a 3 month old baby being carried on her Mother's back. There were also 3 x 1 year old monkeys who were having fun sliding down a tree, it was lovely and funny to watch. Highly recommended.
We did the monkey breakfast experience, staff were really friendly and very knowledgeable. It was great to see the monkeys without the crowds and learn more about the individual characters as well as the more general information about how the monkeys are looked after, the conservation program and their life in the wild. You can tell the monkeys are very well looked after and are relaxed in their environment, it's as much a natural environment as possible for them. After a coffee in the cafe, we then went back into the forest once it was fully open and again it was a great experience to see the monkeys happy in their environment even with lots of people around.
Delightful way to spend a few hours. We arrived just in time for feeding at 11.15. The staff are really professional and the talk regarding the monkeys was most informative without being boring. It was lovely to see the monkeys really enjoying themselves swinging and climbing in the trees.
Reasonably priced. I think it was 8 pound per adult and free for children under 3 and around 6 ish for older kids. Adequate parking. Kids love the monkeys but I suppose even as a couple it could be a fun trip. The monkeys are roaming all over the place and the scenery is amazing. I'd recommend it.
