I highly recommend Maria, she speaks german very well. Take her as a guide. She made the tour very interesting. If you want to contribute in helping such beautiful but endangered animals - this your place! Must see if you love animals and nature.

44 years ago, I was enchanted to watch - every morning and every evening - majestic black-and-white colobus monkeys moving through Diani Forest. Sadly, the population has been decimated.

A very informative visit, detailing the history and ongoing efforts for the conservation of the species. Also the centre helps many other injured animals to recuperate and then be released into the wild.

Not too many monkeys here. We saw a bunch more at our hotel. They are doing fine work, so if you don't visit, perhaps send a check instead.

Sorry to say we were seriously underwhelmed with this project. They only rescue approx. 120 monkeys per year, which is certainly a very small number. We did not see one monkey that was not caged, and then very few. Did not even use camera. Much...More

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!
