The minute you enter the park - the little squirrel monkeys are greeting you - personally! They were curious as to why we were so curious about them. There are signs that they bite - but on our visit, everyone, people and monkeys included were calm and not biting took place! Even the kids in strollers didn't seem to mind... More

Great visit. Not signposted that well so wasn't sure if we were in the right place. Looks like the one carpark covers 3 or 4 different places like klimbos. Spent 4.5hrs just chilling, you don't need to understand Dutch you spend all your time watching the apes. Food reasonably priced for once. Recommend.

I liked the fact that some of the little apes are allowed to walk around freely. Although, some are stuck in their own islands for safety.. It is a nice environment for kids to walk and enjoy a day out. We had a pretty rainy day, that's why the cafes were quite full. We didn't have any umbrellas with us..... More

Though there were much more cages than we expected. We expected to see many monkeys wandering around, byt actually - much of the place is like a zoo. Lots if food. Too much. Too many places for people to buy icecream and other food. Why? Cant people spend few hours without eating?

great park where monkeys roam freely. a fun day out. A bit pricey and unfortunately all is in Dutch only, luckily we had native speaker to translate signs and presentations. But overall a great day out.

There are different types of 'monkeys' here that should be in warmer countries. It is what it is. My daughter liked it, so that's something. I know that visitors to another country should learn some basics of the language of that country, but this is a tourist attraction and more effort should be made to cater for non-Dutch speaking visitors....

Astonishing monkeys zoo! My kids really enjoyed the visit, they could see different kind of apes and very close. It's like a monkeys safari. We took a ticket after 14:30 and we paid 17,50€ adults and 10€ children.

In some parts the monkeys walk free. Be sure to have your items in the special (free) bag that is offered to you. Very large park in the forrest of the Veluwe. A lot of information about the many monkeys who live here. You can easily spend more than 4 hours here. Also a nice spot where children can play.... More

First time that i see monkeys live in their own envoirment without any cages. The site is big and amazing, there are a lot kinds of monkeys and it is beautiful! There are two roads that close half a hour before the site is close so don't be late.

Walk amongst monkeys! Such a cool experience to have the tiny adorable monkeys come right up to you! I recommend this if you haven't done something like it. We don't have children but it is definitely somewhere kids would love too
