Overall nice themed park and very clean. Lot of F&B outlets, slightly expensive. The disappointing part was that not one single monkey approached our party, this was very much different years ago and i was quite excited about this. Will probably give it a miss...More

This park is an excellent monkey-park. All the species monkies from the whole planet live here, in beautiful surroundings, as natural as you can get. The park is also educational about our environment, a real education and much fun

Tired of seeing animals in distressing environments? Me too but here the monkeys roam free in beautiful surroundings. I was lucky enough to have a little one jump on my lap and crawl up onto my shoulder.
