Wonderful zoo! Went on a tour when we arrived, and the tour guide really knew her stuff! Showed us all the animals and explained the type and where they are from etc. Would be great for kids too. You can even play with some monkeys or tigers (not included in normal entrance price).

The cages are tiny, and many of the animals were pacing back and forth their small enclosures. Monkeys were even advertised for sale?? What kind of a reputable place does that?? I was shocked! We booked an 'informative and educational tour'. Pah! A lady walked us to the lions and tigers, without saying a word. When I asked a question... More

Mystic Monkeys and Feathers is a wonderful zoo! They have a large variety of primates, and also some exotic birds and predators. The place is beautifully maintained and the staff is friendly. This place was an unexpected gem that we accidentally discovered!

Never have I had the opportunity to experience what I did this year... Not only did I get to see hundreds of species op monkeys, but I got to play with the most adorable tiger cubs... I definitely recommend this to everyone. Please note , their teeth are quite sharp and the are fast haha... But definitely worth it...

Proud and friendly staff. Animals are well lookes after and there is a wide variety. Although just over an hour's drive from Johannesburg, the trip is worth the while!

This is an absolute must for children. although I do not agree with keeping animals in cages, these animals are really well looked after. Tour guide - great. Curious shop also not too expensive and entrance not to bad either. You also get to play with the tiger cubs (at a small fee). We were "treated" with a small ape... More

EVERYTHING is amazing about this place - the staff, the grounds, the way the animals are housed and cared for. This does not look or feel at ALL like a zoo - it's the most beautiful and caring place we've ever been to!

After visiting amazing wildlife research centres, we felt robbed spending 100r to get in. There was no justification for why the animals where there. We were taken on a 'tour' which consisted of a man walking us around enclosures and reading off the signs the name of the animal and where it was from. No information about them. There are... More

Mystic Monkeys is about 85 km from Pretoria, on their website there are 2 ways to get there from PTA - my advise is to take the second option (Pienaarsrivier/Rust de Winter turnoff) as the first one you drive through the Dinokeng Reserve and the speed limit is reduced so it takes much longer. Mystic Monkeys itself was very good,... More
