All our group (three families with children age 6 to 12) really enjoyed this place. We spend good three hours here walking around and watching keeper talks. Was hard to take children out from amazing playground. Really nice option for day out in this area.

So lovely to see the primates being given as natural a setting as possible and given the choice of whether they are outside playing in the fresh air or inside in the warm. It's always easy to spot them whether they are in or out,...More

After a visit at the tank museum we headed Monkey World It was very nice, a lot of space for us humans but also the monkeys. It's very cool to see those animals chilling out under the sun,
