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.

I visited the Colobus Conservation during my recent stay in Diani. The trust does great work helping the monkeys. We also saw 2 Colobus in the trees of the Conservation. Your money really goes for a good purpose, please visit.

We visited the conservancy as a family activity. Their staff were welcoming and extremely knowledgeable about the primates in the sanctuary, the local flora/fauna and what measures have been put in place to manage human/wildlife conflict in Diani. Great place to go; fantastic for children.
