It was interesting to hear about the different monkees at Diani Beach. The Colobus Conservation Center could be a little more well-kept. Monkeys are mainly seen when some are passing by.

If you would like to see orphaned or rehabilitating primates up close, learn a lot about their characteristics, and their plights, and what can be done to protect them, you are a the right place. Where educative and entertaining guided tour.

There’s no harm in letting them know you’re coming as they get lots of school visits, but they didn’t have specific tour times, so let them know when is best for you and I’m sure you can arrange a good time. Enjoy it!
