  • So fantastic to see the monkeys in such a natural forest and they don't care about the visitors because they are so well looked after and don't feel threatened

  • Second time visiting and loved it as much as the first. Got to see lots of monkeys including the babies, stayed for about 2 hours and did two walks around and feeding times. Worth the visit

  • Beautiful place. Nearly dropped a star for the cafe which is disappointing. Lovely picnic areas so would do that next time. Monkeys are brilliant. Great staff, caring and knowledgeable. Nice play area. Plenty of parking. Ages 10 to 78 loved it.
  • We had a lovely day here! Its definitely weather dependent though! We were lucky enough to have a beautiful sunny day where we could enjoy the monkeys! There are 140 monkeys that are used to having people around. They are easy to see and picture. The monkey forest itself doesn't take long to walk around, but either bring a picnic to eat in the meadow or park, or grab something to eat from the cafe. Then after a rest, you can take another lap of the monkey forest before visiting the gift shop for a cute piece of memorabilia and then trekking home. Would definitely visit again.
