Colobus Conservation was established in 1997 as a not-for-profit organisation to promote conservation of the colobus monkeys and address the threats to its survival. The organization works in partnership with local communities to promote the conservation of the colobus, along with other endemic primate species, and the unique coastal forest habitat on which they depend. Today Colobus Conservation programmes focus on habitat conservation and community linkages as well as human/primate conflict management, welfare, education and research. The objectives and work of Colobus Conservation is recognised internationally by AZA Colobus Species Survival Plan (SSP), Pan African Sanctuary Alliance (PASA) accreditation and are supported by well known conservationists Jonathon and Angela Scott through their role as Patrons.

Don't expect a state of the art facility with beautiful enclosures but what you will find are highly dedicated and knowlegable staff who go the extra mile. Tour will only take around an hour or so and don't forget the monkeys are all wild so sometimes may not be seen. Please help them by visiting as your entry fee will... More

A small sanctuary located in Diani beach doing great work to help support the lovely Colubus monkey .. On arrival you get chance to learn a little more about these creatures in their small education centre and then a guide will personally take you round outside to explain their work and to meet the various monkeys they have there ....

We called in to drop off a Geocaching travel bug and went back. They do an excellent job introducing monkeys back into the wild and the information given was very interesting.
