  • Talk about a tourist trap! It is a cute place to take the kids for an hour or two get some raisins or sunflower seeds and feed the monkeys that is the main attraction here. However it is pretty small ...  more »
  • I loved this place. We paid the normal admission (you could pay $50 more for a more private and close encounter with the monkeys). Once in the park, there are 4 shows and the people giving the shows w...  more »

  • I have never been on a safari, but this is as good as it gets to being on a safari with monkeys. Must do the rain forest tour. It's an experience you will never forget.
  • Every few years we go to monkey jungle and take the tour. The tour goes off the regular path and into the jungle with the monkeys. Charlie has been there for many years now is a great guide and very knowledgable about the monkeys. Within a few minutes of his call monkeys start appearing in the trees and we are all given food to feed them. They will walk right on your shoulders and arms to get a good snack. Very relaxing time in the jungle without anything else to think about except the monkeys. A great experience for all. Kids especially!
  • Monkey jungle was the best thing I did on vacation. The staff is amazing- Elizabeth helped to get me into the rainforest adventure tour and it was really a once in a lifetime experience! You pay an extra fee to feed the monkeys and they crawl all over you, it's so cool. Absolutely go if you are on the fence and pay the extra fee to experience the tour
  • We had a good experience, but it was spoiled by learning that the very monkeys they seemed to be teaching us to respect and treasure had been sent to Coulson Foundation to be used in their biomedical research lab.
  • Cozy jungle all your own. Fun & safe for the whole family :)
