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

Went there right after a storm that had chased a lot of visitors out. And it was 3 or 4pm, which was too late for the feeding shows. So the park was far from crowded. The park is pleasant and big. It makes you walk...More

I hadn’t been here for a few years, and I didn’t see the remodel yet but they did an amazing job! The new park is absolutely great: especially all the extra space the monkeys have. Really a must see for everyone!

Absolutely loved it. The park is beautiful, the staff are really friendly. All the monkeys and apes are incredible and have plenty of space in well kept, spacious enclosures. Lots of places to stop and have a cold drink and food. Highly recommend.

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!
