“Fun and Laughter”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013 via mobile

The Sanctuary strives to be educational to the public and the guided tour was very professional and well organised. We had tons of laughter when one of the monkey's tried to dig in my bag and thanks to the warnings of the Guide upfront I wad not taken aback and scared, but felt privileged to have this amaxing creature interact so closely with me. I would highly recommend this for any Local and especially Tourist!

“Naughty monkeys!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

Wonderful place to visit especially if you have overseas visitors. Very informative tour with a chance to get up close and personal with the monkeys. Advise you to keep personal belongings close as the monkeys are well practiced thieves who can steal your things in the blink of an eye. Very interactive and lovely African upmarket atmosphere

Had a great time at the monkey sanctuary. The guide was really wonderful and we got hilarious footage of a monkey catching a ride on my husbands back. Great time, would recommend!
