Monkey World

Visit Europe’s only orang-utan nursery, at Monkey World!

Monkey World – Ape Rescue Centre is home to over 250 rescued and endangered primates, including Europe’s only orangutan crèche. Visitors can see infants Mimi, Bulu Mata, and Rieke playing and growing up together with their foster family, at the purpose built crèche in the 65 acre park.

Many of the park’s residents were rescued from neglect, unnatural conditions and unbelievable cruelty, but at Monkey World they can all enjoy the company of their own kind in a safe and natural environment, and some are even part of international breeding programmes for endangered species.

Combining fun with conservation, half-hourly keeper talks at the park explain all about man’s closest living relative. Visitors can see the stars of TV’s ‘Monkey Life’, then ‘monkey around’ in the south’s largest Great Ape play area. There are several food outlets available at the park, or visitors are welcome to bring a picnic and enjoy lunch in the beautiful surroundings.
