A wonderful guide who kept it interesting. A great walk through the sanctuary as the monkeys freely go about their business. A fun experience with a lively souvenir shop and friendly staff.

We stumbled upon this place after we finished Africanyon River Adventures. We weren’t sure about this place because it was kind of expensive (240R) but it was worth all of the money. You get an hour tour where a guide takes you around and explains all 9 species of monkeys they have there. These monkeys use to be in captivity and are now being dehumanized back into nature so you can’t touch them or feed them but they do walk all around you. They are so full of personality. It’s amazing to see them up close and in their element.

Well recommended. They do a good job and seems to be more than just a commercial business. Very knowledgeable and engaged guide, however the experience sometimes compromised by the size of the group and very dependent on the behavior of others in the group. It would be nice if one could be allowed to walk around quietly by oneself or maybe have the option of a private tour. Nonetheless, they deserve top marks!

Our trip to Monkeyland was extremely informative. A special shout out to our very knowledgable guide, Bert. The monkeys look extremely happy and they have a massive forest in which to thrive. A worthwhile experience to say the least.

This was a very fun experience. Saw a variety of monkeys and enjoyed being in their presence. The forest in which they are kept are so beautiful and adds to the experience. Very well kept. The guide was also great at giving information about the different types of monkeys.
