I got to play with the cubs and had photos taken, That was very cute and although they were biting it was not that bad. The cages of the monkey are very small and many of the other animals were restless.

The highlight was the interaction with the cubs. The animals are well looked after. The owner gave us a tour to the lion camps. I would not recommend taking children to the camps. If you do take them with, keep them at a save distance at all times.

I know it seems very tempting and we'd all love to cuddle an adorable tiger cub. But this practice in South Africa whilst legal is morally repugnant. What happens to these animals after they are too big to pet? Well looks like they are sold on to private collectors. I'm sure that your reason for wanting to visit this place... More

We went there for a outing and a tour. Some very strange looking apes. We could touch and play with the baby tigers and touch a grown one as well.

Really not impressed with the upkeep at Mystic Monkeys. I am no animal rights activist but seemed like it wasn't up to standards for taking care of such magnificent animals. We paid to go into the tiger cub cage which was great but there was no supervision. No supervison with growing Tiger cubs!!! We were bitten several times with no... More

A good day out if you are in the area but I would not travel far to visit. A wide variety of primates, however I do think they could provide more information about each species. The guided tour around the site was also not very informative. Watching the free roaming meerkats is quite entertaining. Whilst they do offer interaction with... More

Very pretty park, massive variety in the primates & apes they keep. I am not fond of cages and did find the cages a tad small for the monkeys, especially the larger ones. However will add they are well looked after and in good condition. Children seem to enjoy being able to see the animals immediately and without looking too... More

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).
