All reviews worth a visit worthy cause local monkeys gift shop natural habitat interesting tour on wednesdays school children baby monkey animal welfare nice walk small entrance fee tuc tuc money goes wild animals felt safe release
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.
As an animal lover i decided to make a visit to see find out about their conservation efforts.

Thank you for you kind words and for visiting us. It really means a lot to us! I do hope you can visit again in the future.
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!
