We went as a family with a small baby and it was an enjoyable visit. Bigger children probably enjoy more. It’s a very good initiative to help saving various monkey species. Unfortunately the tourist development in Diani has taken away their habitat.

Bring the kids and see the beautiful colobus monkeys and other species up close. Trained guides will tell you everything you need and your fee goes to help protect the colobus monkeys in the Diani area

We weren't expecting anything from this visit. Instead, this trip was a real surprise. Maria, the guide, is a lovely lady who explains everything with so much passion. It's a great initiative we all have to support. Go and see for yourselves.

There’s no harm in letting them know you’re coming as they get lots of school visits, but they didn’t have specific tour times, so let them know when is best for you and I’m sure you can arrange a good time. Enjoy it!
