By way of reward for overcoming their fears of the nearby Padirac caves, we took our three daughters (10,14,17) to see the monkeys here. It was brilliant! We all had a fantastic time watching, photographing, feeding and just being close to these amazing animals. Given the heat (mid-30s), the shade of the forest itself was welcome. The feeding time talk... More

A really nice place for kids who love animals. Not just another park or zoo, with cages and animals you just cannot or not allowed to feed - you walk through the paths, giving popcorn to the friendly monkeys that just walk calmly around you. Fun place! (The popcorn is given at the entrance by the park staff, and this... More

Hubby loves monkeys so we all went to visit. It's 9e each for adults and not a lot to do and see apart from lots of cute monkeys who like to eat the handful of popcorn you are given. It's great for children to see the monkeys and babies up close and they were all well behaved The cafe is... More

This place is always a delight - we have been a number of times now - often with different friends or family members but everyone loves this activity and it is not cheap but it is reasonable (admission price includes popcorn to feed to the monkeys) and you can stay as long as you like and get great photographs of...

This was a blast for the kids. Parents enjoyed it too! A great break from cultural sightseeing and shopping, etc. Having these sweet creatures take a piece of popcorn out of their hands is sure to be a highlight of the trip for the kids. The monkeys have a great habitat and are well taken care of. Fun to see... More

For a family of 4 it cost us about £25. Great value for money. Amazing to see and a real treat to be able to feed them popcorn by hand as they roam free.

The great thing about this place, is that you get face to face with the monkeys, and at the same time helps the breeding program by your entrance fee. Staff is very good, although one could wish for a smaller number of visitors at the time.

You have children and/or a wife who love monkeys. Stop their on your way to Rocamadour. This is a monkey sanctuary where you can walk among the monkey and even feed them popcorn provided by the park following some basic rules. Good add on to our one day trip to Rocamadour

Loved this. Been to monkey sanctuaries in the past and this was the best. The fact that you get to feed them is what makes it so much more rewarding. Friendly informative staff. Take a packed lunch as there is a nice picnic area within the park too.
