My sons favourite part of the holiday! Great fun, kills a couple of hours and excellent value for money. Good little cafe for refreshments. Best thing is that you can get up close and feed the monkeys from your hand!

My 10 year old son says "I had awesome time, I loved feeding the monkeys. It rained a bit, but it didn't matter. It was great watching the monkeys playing in their cave area". We were only there just over an hour. I would say its 2 hours max. Rain curtailed our trip a bit. It is really easy to... More

Nice to be able to feed the monkeys , pity no more food could be bought, I enjoyed watching them and feeding them but did feel sad about the amount of trees they are unable to climb incase they escape! I am aware they have a good amount of trees to have access to but they did seem a bit... More

There are likely not many places you can get so up close and personal with monkeys. Children love it and not hard to see why! Feeding the monkeys hand to hand is certainly a new one for me. Staff are friendly and will answer questions about the animals. Lots of signage explaining various aspects of behaviour and quiz questions to... More

We went there today. Grandmother, wife, 2 kids (3 and 6) and me. Give yourself 90 minutes to amble around with your popcorn (provided on entry) and see the monkeys. There's three groups as you wander around so don't get carried away giving everything away in the first 'family' or else your kids will be sad to have nothing to... More

Definitely worthy of a visit if you're in the area, it's not everyday you can stand next to a monkey and get it to take food from your hand. It's a nice setting and my kids loved it. If I have any criticisms it's that there is little else there but the monkeys, it really is only about an hour... More

As monkey parks go, this one did not excite me. Just one type on monkey. Several large panels explaining monkey business. An interesting presentation. And free range monkeys. Young children will surely enjoy it, certainly a little more than they would feeding ducks on the village pond. Mother monkeys with babys are certainly cute. But this attraction just made me...

This is just a large enclosure full of macaques with a decent cafe outside. As you go into the enclosure you are given a handful of popcorn and instructed how to feed the monkeys. After that you just wander along the paths and allow the monkeys who sit by the sides to take popcorn from your hands. It's quiet and... More

Well worth a visiit there are loads of monkeys to feed, and you can observe them just going about there everyday lives sleeping eating playing grooming etc they are very used to people so don't run away. We saw lots of all ages including tiny babies. Do talk to the people who look after them they're very knowledgable and give... More

Not sure why we did not come here in previous years?!? This is a great way to see monkeys up close. On your way in you get a few handfuls of popcorn (yes, POPCORN) which you can feed the monkeys and they grab it out of your hands. The monkeys are very entertaining to watch and the babies are very... More
