Embark on a captivating journey into the heart of Monkeyland, the world's pioneering free-roaming, multi-species Primate Sanctuary. The air is alive with the animated chatter of various primates, creating an atmosphere of anticipation and wonder. As you approach, the distant calls of Howlers and the melodic serenades of Gibbons enchant your senses, offering a harmonious prelude to the unique experience that awaits.

Monkeyland stands as a sanctuary and forever home for over 550 ex-captive primates, hailing from closed-down zoos, parks, and even former households. Within the sanctuary's expansive 12-hectare indigenous forest, these remarkable creatures live out their natural lives, free from the constraints of captivity. The sanctuary serves as a testament to conservation efforts, offering these primates a second chance at life in a protected and nurturing environment.

Guiding you through this primate haven is one of South Africa's most seasoned primate safari guides. The 1-hour guided tour unveils the secrets of the forest, with guides pointing out the diverse array of primates and regaling you with anecdotes and fascinating facts about their lives. This immersive experience provides ample opportunities to capture the magic on camera and engage with the knowledgeable guides, who are open to answering any questions you may have.

Monkeyland's commitment to inclusivity is reflected in its accessibility for all ages and fitness levels, with wheelchair accessible pathways ensuring that everyone can partake in this extraordinary adventure. Rain or shine, Monkeyland is an all-weather facility; however, be prepared to embrace the elements during rainy days. The sanctuary's unique charm is further enhanced by the option to customize your guided tour language, with arrangements available in Afrikaans or French if booked at least 48 hours in advance.

Step into Monkeyland and witness the beauty of primates thriving in their natural habitat, creating memories that resonate with the spirit of conservation and appreciation for these incredible creatures.
