I visited this centre with a friend hoping to see monkeys swinging happily in an environment fit for their welfare. What I found were around a dozen monkeys of varying sizes occupying small concrete floored cages around 5 feet in height with nothing else inside....More

I felt so bad for these poor, poor babies. They are so very sad. They are either tied up on a very short chain or in a small cage... Pretty horrible. It was a bit hard to watch. The ONLY reason I'm giving it 2...More

The show was just ok, but totally is too simple. All poor monkey was caged. Also there are less people are going there.

Thus show was one a rip off and two animal cruelty at its best. One of the older monkeys was so ANGRY and quite aggressive. It was actually a bit scary. Will never return or recommend to anyone.

Do not give your time or money. The poor animals are clearly mistreated and kept in tiny metal cages. They have metal collars with short chains on constantly. I went in thinking it would be a rescue or sanctuary but was horribly wrong. I feel...More

Do not go to this place, they do not deserve your money. The monkeys are kept on very short chains and basically go insane and get broken so that they can perform these useless tricks.
