An easy-going monkey-zoo, because several animals are allowed to walk, sit, jump, climb and swing close to visitors. One shouldn’t try to pet them by the way: they look friendly but could bite your hand. There are many species, young and old. It’s nice to be able to see the animals in their day-to-day life from so close and spot... More

This was a pleasant experience. You see lots of exhibits and very informative. Plan for 3 or more hours to get a good idea of the exhibits and grounds. There is a lot of walking, but a map is provide. Lots of monkeys to see. Some are roaming around the area, so it is nice to see that. I recommend... More

A good day out for young and old. Lots of different kind of apes in a pretty good, natural environment. The large primates e.g. gorillas, Orangutangs and Bonobos live in colonies at a safe, but observable distance; in parts the smaller deaths-head monkeys run free amongst the visitors. It get's pretty crowded during the main school vacations - especially if... More

If you really want to see a lot of the apes -and other animals - you need at least 3 hours. We went there on a working day. So it was rather calm. All the visitors behaved nicely. No shouting,no feeding the animals,etc. You can really see a lot of different apes and you have all the time doing so.... More

It was many years ago the last time I was here, so now coming back was almost coming to a new Park, what an amazing well maintained/ organized and green Park this is. Besides the fact it just great fun seeing the monkeys jumping around freely, there is a lot of educational stuff going on, either with the signs or... More

Great visit, With two families we visited the park on a busy Sunday in September. Carpark was a fair walk to the entrance but with our internet tickets there was no waiting! Free monkey proof bags to protect your valuables from "thieving" primates. It was very busy but still very enjoyable. Lovely park in the forest. Plenty of shadow. Must... More

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.
