I agree with all the reviews written about this park. It is unique in that you can get so close to the monkeys and they are very comfortable being around you. Their is no fencing and it is obvious they ahve a great life and the hábitat is very similiar to where they are from. Excellent learning experience for children.

I've been visiting this area of France for the last 10 years and somehow never knew this place existed. I've visited a few monkey sanctuaries and none have let you get close to the monkeys, let alone feed them - It was a great experience. There was a monkey sitting on the wall at the end of the walk who'd... More

Still love this place. It's wonderful to see the monkeys living more or less naturally & interacting with humans. A very special place. Great to be able to offer them popcorn. They are so gentle & polite.

We went here really because our 5 year old daughter wanted to go. However, we all really very much enjoyed it. You can get very close to the monkeys and feed them the popcorn. I was worried that they might be a bit over-playful, but they weren't. They were absolutely gorgeous and so gentle (they take the food out of... More

Been here several times and always good. The animals are kept in fabulous surroundings and there are great views over Rocamadour too...and unlike English attractions, this (as all French attractions), are affordable for families

Not expensive and an easy to find location once near Rocamadour. We went two hours before closed time (times vary depending on season) and it was cooler and monkeys were playful. Came away with hundreds of close up photos of baby monkeys!

We visited the Monkey Forest on the way back from Rocamadour. We got there about 4 o'clock time & it was still busy. It was under 9€ per person. You are given some food to feed the monkeys. You can get up close to the animals, they are very tame. You cannot touch them though. I would have liked some... More

We had a lovely early evening walk around La Foret des Singes seeing the monkey's up to their tricks. Great photo opportunities. Not sure what it must be like during the breeding season!!! Be sure to ask at the desk about the times of the feeding "animation" and where to go, as this information was not offered, and we were,... More

While the scenery and town was one of the most beautiful I've ever seen, my day started out visiting the Monkeys at this incredible reserve. It opens at 9:30am and if arriving in Rocamadour by train, be aware the train station is 5 km from the town so a good pair of walking shoes, or a visit to the hotel... More

Visiting this forest is different from visiting a zoo. Children love it! Educating, good spaces for the monkeys, important goal to keep the species.
