I was very impressed with my visit to Monkeyland. I was told by people that already visited the place that it is an absolute must visit, so some friends and I decided to try it out while we were in the area.
We didn't really care much for curios at the store, so I can't comment on the prices, but everything seemed neat and in place. There is also a restaurant at the establishment.
Our tour guide was Jacob, a volunteer from Germany. He was very knowledgeable about the different monkeys we encountered and was also thorough in answering questions asked to him by the people in the tour group.
All the monkeys in Monkeyland were once owned by people or zoos; the exception of course is the velvet monkey that is found in that area of South Africa;, and Monkeyland tries to rehabilitate them into a pseudo natural environment where they can roam freely. This rehabilitation consists of them learning from what other monkeys are doing in the wild (monkey see, monkey do) and making them less dependent from humans.
Feeding tables can be seen spread throughout the park and it is interesting to see how different species visit different feeding tables.
All in all it is a great experience to see monkeys roaming freely in a vast forest. The monkeys do not hesitate to come close, making for some great photo opportunities.
If you are in the area make some time to visit Monkeyland, it is absolutely worth it.
