4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

A lot of walking and unfortunately, not many covered eating/drinking areas. The park itself is quite beautiful with wide paths; a view more larger viewing areas would have been nice. A large variety of all sorts of monkeys and on some occasions, they came really close. We have to go again when the kids are a bit older.

Enjoyed the many monkeys. It was a very busy day but still you could see them all. The kids liked it too only for little kids the little monkeys coming on their shoulders or head scare them in a scream.

You can get really close to many of the animals, the shows are nice but you need to understand dutch as we didnt hear any presentations in other languages. Worth a visit.

Ever seen Monkeys in the wild? Well, this is as close as it gets. Almost all run free and are a great way to see the live of them in real.

This is a cute zoo. Almost all monkey of various types, and a few other animals from the areas these monkeys come from. Super bi-lingual staff, so english is no problem. Nice grounds, very clean, and it gives you the impression the monkeys are very well taken care of (which is not the casein al zoos !!!) I'd go back... More
