  • You want to learn something about Monkeys: go here. A lot of different species and a ranger who can tell you everything about it. Try to be there around feeding time, 3-4 pm.

  • Wonderful place, with good guides. However the price is quite steep for what you get to see. What you see though is very close up and personal. And very informative.
  • We always love our time at both sanctuaries... We make sure we visit every year when we are this side of the world. These Sanctuaries need your support... Until next time ♥️
