Colobus Conservation was established in 1997 as a not-for-profit organisation to promote conservation of the colobus monkeys and address the threats to its survival. The organization works in partnership with local communities to promote the conservation of the colobus, along with other endemic primate species, and the unique coastal forest habitat on which they depend. Today Colobus Conservation programmes focus on habitat conservation and community linkages as well as human/primate conflict management, welfare, education and research. The objectives and work of Colobus Conservation is recognised internationally by AZA Colobus Species Survival Plan (SSP), Pan African Sanctuary Alliance (PASA) accreditation and are supported by well known conservationists Jonathon and Angela Scott through their role as Patrons.

colobus trust have taken upon themselves to protect and preserve the endangered species of colubus and other species. it gives me great joy to visit their conservation at diani. Watching the animals cross the foot bridge and reducing threats posed by speeding motorists gives me a great joy. Pay attention to the conservation - it is breath taking.

I volunteered here so I am biased! It's a small, independent charity and they make whatever money they get go as far as it can. It's not a zoo or a safari, it's an educational experience and you get to see and hear about the practical things they do to help colobus and other primates in the area. Love this... More

amazing to see the colobus monkeys as they are very shy and tend to stay high up in the tree's.very pretty with their black bodies and white faces,the babies are really funny to watch as they get up to all sorts of antics. The trust is doing a super job and deserve your support in the work they are doing... More

This conservation trust is really doing a great job helping the endangered Angolan Colobus Monkeys. They nurse and restore to health monkeys which have been attacked by dogs, were involved in an accident, or hurt in any other way. The visit of the trust compound was very informative and is definitely recommendable.

I love monkeys and I am very proud to see the work that people are doing here. I didn't know this place existed until i was referred to it by the owner of Diani Beachalets.

When visiting diani beach and looking for something special to do, a guided tour at the colobus trust is definitely worth a visit. The guided walk is very educational and the pocket friendly entry fee goes directly towards the conservation of primate habitat, veterinary needs and rehabilitation of injured animals. Its a very worthy cause and fun experience!
