The Monkey Jungle was the highlight of our trip. The grounds are designed for the comfort of the animals. The monkeys are well cared for and live in a natural tropical environment. Staff are caring and courteous. The squirrel monkeys live in 5 tropical acres in which the humans walk through a caged area while the monkeys are free.

It is a small jungle where the monkeys are in the wild and the human are caged. There are four shows of only 15 min. Cameroon Gorilla Forest was the best because at least the animal follows directions from trainer. The others, Wild Monkey Swimming Pool (I couldn't see any monkey swimming), Hanging with Orangutans (the animal was sleeping most... More

I have been here 4 times over a 12 year period . The park isn't nearly what it used to be . The number of monkeys / animals has dropped considerably and they don't look as healthy as I remembered them. For $30/adult ... you may want to skip it . We left after 35 minutes . Was going to... More

Great place to get up close and personal with some very cool Monkey's. My boys, 2 and 4 had a blast feeding the monkey's and running around the vast park. The exhibits were great and the educational shows were actually fun. You get to look around at your own pace and really just enjoy the animals in their habitat. It's... More

It is so much fun watching these monkeys drop dishes at you from above, asking for food. Put a few raisins in the dish and they eagerly pull the chain up, eat them, drop it back down, and shake it at you if you stop paying attention to them. They can't be fooled, though; put a non-food item in there... More

$30 p/p just to go in and walk around. And (prepare yourself..)... $90 per person to interact with monkeys! !?! We left. It's out in the middle of no where.

Very small jungle but the monkeys are very cute. It's overpriced for the facility and space not worth the admission fees. The baby monkeys are adorable though

I gave Monkey Jungle 5 stars based on spending the money for the rainforest encounter. Elizabeth led our encounter. She is very friendly and knowledgeable. She did a great job of teaching us how to attract the monkeys. We were monkey bombed! The encounter is not inexpensive, but it was probably a once in a lifetime experience for us.

This place was so fun and different. It was so cute to feed the little monkeys. You put the food into the cup and the monkey pulls the chain up to get the food. Cutest thing I've ever seen - it never got old! It's a small place and you get through it in an hour so it doesn't take... More
