A wonderful place to go and visit in the Summertime. So lovely to see all the monkeys and lemurs, leaping around and being themselves, and giving people a nice opportunity for a glimpse of how they would be in their natural habitat with their cute little monkey antics. Very informative, would be really great if they had the shows in... More

My husband and I had a great time touring Apenheul last week while on the way out of Apeldoorn. It was fun and interesting to wander around the park and see all the monkeys, apes, gorillas, and other complimentary species, some of which were allowed to walk freely around the park. Friday morning was a good time to visit. It... More

Mazing place for kids. I never thought a zoo for just different spiecies of monkeys could be this good. Lots of spieces of monkeys. Many roaming free in the park in designated areas. Feeding shows with gorillas and orang oetangs are worth watching. The caretaker clearly explains in detail the habits and hierachy.

Our family went for a half day and it was a huge hit with our 4 year old daughter. The setup of the park is great, and the cafes and speeltuins are well spaced out so that just when our daughter was starting to get tired of the monkeys we could take a break. She also loved the swag the... More

As the website advertises it, plan 5 hours for the visit. Time will fly. Such a nice walk in so much green. And a fantastic way to show wild animals to kids while they are not trapped in tiny cages but semi-free. I loved the orang-otangs, and they looked so happy, we saw a mum and baby playing together which... More

I love the Apenheul. Situated in the middle of the forest and filled with such gorgeous primates. Nearly everything (other than the great apes) is free roaming which is just so awesome. All of the monkeys have very large enclosures or "roaming" spaces. The gorilla habitat is huge and so beautiful. I definitely recommend going to the daily gorilla presentation... More

Gorgeous Park located in the middle of a forest. It specializes in apes and monkeys. Many of the beautiful, playful monkeys do not lived in cages, but in large, natural enclosures in the forest. The visitors can walk among the monkeys and enjoy them. Well worth a visit if you're in the Netherlands.

This is a great "zoo" to visit, because the animals have lots of space, and management is really concerned with keeping the apes occupied, and give them as much variation in their daily life as possible. My grandson loved the part where the apes could come up to him. One of them came to sit on his shoulder. Super! He... More
