We have visited twice now, both times have been absolutely fantastic. It is wonderful to see the monkeys so close up and have them walking across the path in front of you. There are talks at feeding times, and the staff are approachable and friendly,...More

I took my young daughter and thought there would be some sort of interaction with the monkeys but every time the monkeys get close to you as they walk up to you out of curiosity I assume, the wardens move you along. Wasn’t expensive but...More

Thank you for your review. The monkeys are wild animals and therefore park rules state that visitors must stay at least a metres distance at all times, this is for the safety of both the monkeys and visitors and to keep their environment as natural...More

We had seen the adverts but still couldn't quite believe how amazing the site is. Seeing the monkeys close up was a lifetime experience I will never forget. There are plenty of places to rest as it is quite a steep trail in some places....More

Lovely relaxed atmosphere throughout the whole place. Feels a bit weird to be walking on a path while monkeys just freely wander about, but weird in a good way. Very unique place, highly recommend as its a good place to spend a day and suitable...More

The staff on arrival were very informative, giving us extra information re easier paths to follow once we had entered the forest. Before entering the forest we were advised to read the 'Forest rules' which explained expected behaviour towards the free roaming Barbary macaques, there...More

I’m afraid not, the monkeys are able to roam freely so no dogs allowed.
