Our group went to Monkey Jungle and it was a great time! The weather was terrific! The experience made our group "jell" and then the monkeys were just so much fun!

This was the highlight of our trip! We went on January 30, 2014 and once we were all geared up and had a few zips under our belts, it started raining - HARD. It loosened up the group and made it more fun! It was so cool!! Eddie Murphy, Usher and Akon were the BEST!!! So much fun and professional at the same time. Very informative of the rules and how to do it. The monkey tour with Tom Cruise was excellent as well. Again, very informative. Well worth the cost of admission - it all goes to the medical centre anyways! LOVED IT!!!!! I'd give it ten stars if it was an option.

“Monkey Jungle”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2014

This was my first time zip lining & of course, I was terrified ! However, our guides were absolutely fantastic !! They put me at ease, answered every little question & fear & made sure I was safe at all times. On one line, they even let me go down in tandem with one of them. It was a superb experience & I would highly recommend it. It was pouring rain while we were on the zip lines but that didn't matter as it was still well worth it. Our guides were Akon, "Eddie Murphy", "Drake" & "Usher" - what a hoot we had with them ! They kept us laughing with their antics & the Eddie Murphy & User Congo routine was hilarious !! They were a fantastic group of guides & I would request them in the future.

After our zip lining, we then went in to see the monkeys. I was highly impressed with the instructions given beforehand, with the reasons why the rules were the way they were but the best was to see the interaction between "Tom Cruise" and the animals. It is quite obvious that this young man does this job - not because he has to, but because he loves the animals and genuinely cares for them. To be that up close & personal with these gorgeous creatures is an amazing experience.

The fact that all profits from our fees & purchases, help to support the free medical & dental clinics for the locals, makes the experience that much more enriching. What they provide is beyond measure & as a volunteer myself, I can only commend those who run Monkey Jungle, for the invaluable services they provide, without cost.

I will be back !

“Monkeys great, Zip Lining is average”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2014

Good - Feeding the tame, lovely monkeys. Zip-line guides were all funny and personable. The money made here all goes to charity.
Bad- The zip-lines were just average. The road to get there is very bad. Take a four wheeler or pay the extra for the bus. Long drive to it.
