You can buy nuts a bananas on site but seemed expensive. We were there early, at 9ish but not a monkey to be seen. We sat and rested for awhile after walking the perimeter (it's a wooded area so trainers are best) then suddenly there were lots and lots of monkeys. They are very tame and will eat out of your hand. Definitely worth a visit.

What a wonderful experience feeding these small friendly monkeys, who take the peanuts directly from your hand. Make sure you take plenty with you and buy them (the ones still in their shells) before you arrive at the park, as this will be much cheaper.

What a lovely little spot! This is not a zoo, this is where the monkeys lives and choose to stay, we loved to see the natural place and the monkeys are really friendly! Don't forget to bring bananas and nuts! Ask your guide and they will help you! Count on about 3-4 hours to walk around!

When in the Gambia, this is a great opportunity to see some wildlife (though the monkeys are habituated to human visitors). Grown ups and kids alike will be delighted to see the animals at close range, feed them peanuts and take their pictures. I went around lunch time and got great photographs of plenty of monkeys. There may be more monkeys earlier in the day, and they may be hungier and more eager for hand outs of good, however, there may be more people, too.

nice to see and feed the monkeys. Don't be ripped off when you arrive. Buy your nuts, in shells, and bananas before you go much cheaper. Also be prepared to say you've been before and ignore the "guides" who basically just want your money. It's easy enough to find your way around. Go in the morning, that's when the monkeys take the nuts more readily, by afternoon they're full. Don't forget the goats love the nuts too.
