Monkey Tour with Feeding


Activity Description

The Monkey Sanctuary is a privately owned, non-subsidised sanctuary, covering approximately 7 ha, situated alongside the elephant sanctuary in one of the many kloofs of the Magaliesberg mountain range.

Monkey Sanctuary in Hartbeespoort, North West Province is one of only eight free-release primate sanctuaries globally. Our primates are received on the basis of public donations, and supported by funding generated by our guided tours and sales of our curios.

Primates, such as our squirrel, spider and capuchin monkeys, are given a new lease on life at Monkey Sanctuary. Previously raised as household pets, or bred for the pet trade, our monkeys are introduced to a wild world laden with waterfalls, lush vegetation, natural mountain springs and the chance to reside in as natural and environment as possible. Our goal is to give them the opportunity to live as they would in the wild.

Monkey Sanctuary recognizes the importance of community education. Not only are our tours highly informative, but we strive to create awareness toward the benefit of releasing primates into sanctuaries such as our own. Guests leave our tours with the understanding that monkeys do not make good pets, and that they are better suited to a natural, free-living environment.

We look forward to guiding you through our Sanctuary, and trust that you will enjoy the splendour of our natural environment to the fullest.

Customer Reviews

I went there twice. First, I introduced my friend Markus from Luxembourg to Monkeys...somehow I'm started fall in love with the monkeys. And then I introduced my friend Yvonne to Monkeys again. Fantastic.... With my heart that I am really grateful with Wyson that way he tried very hard to explain us about the Monkeys because he understands that we are Deaf. He is really wonderful guy!!! Hopefully you will have an interpreter for the Deaf in the future! thanks. Of course, I will come back.... - Johannes van der Westhuizen
