Gorgeous primate park. Well maintained and the access to the primates was amazing. Loved it. They looked healthy and happy! Fun watching the feedings-the explanations are all in Dutch so we didn't understand but fun to watch the monkeys, apes, lemurs etc. Great day out!

Monkeys are loose! Not gorillas and orang-utans, but smaller monkeys. It can happen that they come to sort also your bag.. and you mustn’t touch them. Children are extremely happy there, excepts the ones that stick their finger for being bitten.. many eating areas, always...More

As much fun as a barrel full of monkeys. Areas where monkeys approach and walk on you. Large variety of monkeys. Lots of areas for food and drink but don’t take them in the open areas. Tamper proof monkey pouches can be purchased. Lot’s of...More

We live close by and go regularly. We always wonder who's looking at who here... Most monkeys walk around freely in their enclosures. Watching them without barriers is a funny thing, sometimes they watch you or touch you which leeds to astonishment every single time....More

You can easily spend a good 4 to 5 hours there if you take your time and spend some more time at the area where the monkeys walk around freely and see the shows. Enjoy your stay!
