    Walking in the forest with guides to tell you everything about the experience. What an experience. Just hold on to your camera and don't feed the animals. A great experience. They offer only guided tours and the tours are an hour each. A nice little restaurant on site to have a snack and a nice curio shop as well.

    In Birds of Eden you can spend as much time as you want to, UN-guided. Well worth buying the combo that gives you entrance to both. Monkeyland and Birds of Eden.

    Great place to spend a morning or afternoon. They also have a great, free volunteer program if you want to help out.

Description

Situated next to another wildlife sanctuary, Birds of Eden, Monkeyland Primate Sanctuary is the world’s first free-roaming, multi-species primate sanctuary. Covering an area of 12 hectares of indigenous forest, Monkeyland provides ex-captive primates with a healthier, more natural lifestyle in complete freedom. Currently, Monkeyland is home to over 500 primates including gibbons, howler monkeys, ... read more
vervet monkeys, langurs, sakis, capuchins, squirrel monkeys, ring-tailed lemurs, and the critically endangered black and white ruffed lemurs.
Experienced and knowledgeable multi-lingual rangers guide guests on a 1-hour tour of the forest informing guests about the wonders of the forest and its other inhabitants, including its rich and diverse bird species such as the Knysna loerie, hadeda ibises, olive thrush and many more. A particular highlight is crossing the suspension bridge which spans 128m across the forest canopy offering magnificent views of the valley below and the surrounding ‘green belt’ which extends far beyond Monkeyland.
Monkeyland is a sanctuary in every sense of the word and by working with the non-profit organisation SAASA (the South African Animal Sanctuary Alliance PBO No. 200/060 667/08), who are the sole custodians of all the Monkeyland primates, their future is secured. Our guests leave with a far greater understanding of the primates of the world and the dangers they face in the wild as well as in captivity.
The sanctuary funds itself by means of responsible eco-tourism and is currently the only Fairtrade accredited primate sanctuary in South Africa. A fully licenced restaurant and curio shop are also available together disabled access and facilities. Associated with
