Colobus Conservation was established in 1997 as a not-for-profit organisation to promote conservation of the colobus monkeys and address the threats to its survival. The organization works in partnership with local communities to promote the conservation of the colobus, along with other endemic primate species, and the unique coastal forest habitat on which they depend. Today Colobus Conservation programmes focus on habitat conservation and community linkages as well as human/primate conflict management, welfare, education and research. The objectives and work of Colobus Conservation is recognised internationally by AZA Colobus Species Survival Plan (SSP), Pan African Sanctuary Alliance (PASA) accreditation and are supported by well known conservationists Jonathon and Angela Scott through their role as Patrons.

We called in to drop off a Geocaching travel bug and went back. They do an excellent job introducing monkeys back into the wild and the information given was very interesting.

We really enjoyed our visit to the Colobus Conservation centre and learnt a great deal. Esther was our guide and was full of enthusiasm about all that is being done locally to help protect monkeys and conserve their habitat. Time well spent.

The colobridges a sign to show the importance of colobus monkeys to the environment. The really informative centre. Learn about different primates. Pass by the nature trail see the mythical baobab and the efforts to detrap the traps for dikdiks. Pass by the gift shop buy a shirt or some good oil for your skin removing blemishes.
