Owner description: 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.

It's a great place to visit as with the price of your ticket you will be helping this excellent conservation effort.

The animals here are rescued from a variety of things including from homes where these wild animals have been forced to live as domesticated pets.

100% of the monkeys are rehabilitated back into the wild. It's a quick visit (less than an hour) and a fantastic cause to support!

Definitely worth a visit. The tour only takes about 45 minutes, but is very informative. Very scary how the natural habitat of so many species has been taken over by humans - this organisation makes an honest contribution to preserving various vulnerable species. Naturally, one is not allowed to interact or pet the monkeys, as they are prepared to be reintroduced into the wild.

Thanks for an interesting visit!

Thank you for your kind words and taking the time to visit us to learn about the project. Your support means so much and without it we would not be able to continue doing the work we do!

We were guided round this by Esther. She was really interesting and told us a lot that we did not know. The work done here is so essential to keep this species going and needs all the help it can get. There were two school parties when we were there. This was so good to see the young children being educated in nature and the need for conservation. Please try to visit if you are in DIani. You won't regret it.

I loved the tour and I think the staff could elaborate their tour a little bit more. I still cannot tell vervits and sykes apart that well so it would be useful to show the difference more between the different types of monkeys.

Hi Lisa,

Thank you for your feedback, what a shame, we often have both the Sykes and vervets onsite. Please check out our website to learn more about the different primate species found in Diani. Thank you for visiting us!
