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.

We took a taxi to Colobus Conservation - only a couple of minutes as it is in Diani - beach side of the road. The tour lasts for about an hour showing how the organization works to save the monkeys and forests of the area. Great way to get out of the hotel and support conservation.

Not a lot to really see or do. That said we did see some monkeys and the staff were passionate about their work and we learnt a lot. We were happy that our entrance fee was going to support a worthy cause.

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
