Probably monkey heaven - huge canopy of trees and the monkeys free to roam. They are all around humans, but still keep their distance. Wonderful to see different species at such close range. Great activity for kids. Particularly enjoyed having Andy as a guide -...More

Not often you get chance to get so close to monkeys. You are walked throught the woods with a very knowledgable guide.

This is a very pleasant attraction. You will see various species of primates in their natural habitat, and the tour is guided by a professional.

Monkey land is an awesome place to visit! Here you see different types of primates in nature. Feeding time is the best time to come.

Hi, we will be visiting in January with our then almost two-year-old son. Do I have to go on a tour? Don't know if a two year old will/can/wants to stick to a schedule lol. Can we move around freely, maybe after the tour? Cheers :)
