My friend from the UK and I visited here recently. We have a guide from north Africa who was so good with children and really shared some interesting facts about all the monkeys they have in their enclosure. Also saw the biggest tortoise ever.
You walk through a Forest visiting feeding stations with a warden pointing out the monkeys and Lemurs. All animals are not capable of living in the wild ex pets or unwanted from zoos. Well looked after, informative warden nice trinket shop at the end.
A great way to get up close with monkeys in their natural habitat. The guides are also very knowledgeable. A super way to spend an hour or so. Don't forget the mosquito spray! They have cream there if you need extra. There's a fantastic restaurant...More
What a treat to be given a guided tour of the sanctuary. We saw so many different monkeys living in a wonderful environment. Our guide was knowledgeable .Highly recommend .Kids will absolutely love it.
Our guide was very friendly and did his best to show us all of the species. Lots and lots of different monkeys and apes in a beautiful big sanctuary. They are not in cages but free roaming in the woods. Really worth a visit!
Cost 40usd for 2 for tour

Beautiful sanctuary with lots of monkeys roaming a very big park. Most of them are saved from abuse and they now seem to have great lives. Very nice and educated tour guides as well. Too bad you can't stay longer inside the park and have...More
We visited here along with birds of Eden and out of the 2 this would be the favourite.
You are taken around by a guide and we were lucky within the first few minutes to see a number of different varieties of monkeys and apes...More

In February we’ll be traveling from Port Elizabeth to Cape Town. Below is our planned route. Please let me know if it is realistic. Day 1: Addo park Day 2: AM: morning drive in Addo park PM: Port Elizabeth - Jeffrey`s Bay – Tsitsikamma (200 km, 3.5 hrs) When do AM tours in Addo usually end? Should we be able to make it further to Knysna? I believe that would make 280 km (4.5hrs) of driving for that day. Is it safe to drive the last portion of that road in the night? Day3:...More

Hi again, I would highly recommend to stay in Tstsikamma, either in the Storm River Mouth part of the National Park or in one of the guest houses nearby and NOT drive further to Knysna. Wake up early the next morning, hike to the suspension bridge and continue. For the rest of the day, don't try to do too much. If you are keen to stay in Riversdale, you can't do too much either way. Forget Oudthoorn, it is a huge detour, unless you are okay to stay there overnight. From the attractions...More
