Lovely place to be with the whole family. Walking through the park, you are into the magos monkeys territory, allowed to observe and even interact with them. Keep the popcorn you are given when entering the place to give it to monkeys along the way. A special experiment in total security. You have the best view of Rocamadour at one... More

We were last here in 2005 and it was a joy to come back. It would be nice to be able to say that the apes remembered us but they're too polite to spoil anybody's day! It's a little bit bumpy for my wheelchair but it was well worth the discomfort to meet these great characters.

What a lovely couple of hours. So lovely to see the monkeys free to roam in the trees. They give you popcorn to feed them which is so lovely . Totally safe and great that they just take it out of your hands. Great value too , not expensive to get in . Great for kids and adults alike .... More

Very impressed with this smaller monkey park. The monkeys run freely around the park, and you are given a handful of free popcorn to feed the monkeys with. Kids loved being able to get close to the monkeys and were delighted when they took popcorn from their hands. Great place to visit for 1/2 day. Also good views of rocamadour.... More

By way of reward for overcoming their fears of the nearby Padirac caves, we took our three daughters (10,14,17) to see the monkeys here. It was brilliant! We all had a fantastic time watching, photographing, feeding and just being close to these amazing animals. Given the heat (mid-30s), the shade of the forest itself was welcome. The feeding time talk... More

A really nice place for kids who love animals. Not just another park or zoo, with cages and animals you just cannot or not allowed to feed - you walk through the paths, giving popcorn to the friendly monkeys that just walk calmly around you. Fun place! (The popcorn is given at the entrance by the park staff, and this... More

Hubby loves monkeys so we all went to visit. It's 9e each for adults and not a lot to do and see apart from lots of cute monkeys who like to eat the handful of popcorn you are given. It's great for children to see the monkeys and babies up close and they were all well behaved The cafe is... More

This was a blast for the kids. Parents enjoyed it too! A great break from cultural sightseeing and shopping, etc. Having these sweet creatures take a piece of popcorn out of their hands is sure to be a highlight of the trip for the kids. The monkeys have a great habitat and are well taken care of. Fun to see... More
