Monkey Land

Monkeyland Tour

Just a short distance from Port Elizabeth, just outside of  Plettenburg Bay is ‘Monkeyland’, the world’s first free roaming primate sanctuaries.

Monkeyland opened its doors to the public on the 6th of April 1998. Their unique primate sanctuary is currently one of the top eco-tourism attraction on the Garden Route. Monkeyland has captured the hearts of visitors in its efforts to rehabilitate and free previously caged primates. The sanctuary is exceptional as it caters for several species of primates who are not caged. They are free to move about the forest and this they do most harmoniously.

At Monkeyland, the emphasis on searching for the primates, and the reward is to see the various species as they are meant to be: free and in a natural habitat. The transfer of information about these fascinating creatures enhances your visit to the sanctuary during a guided tour. The tours are conducted by multi-lingual game rangers and are fun, exciting and educational. Our guests leave our sanctuary with a greater understanding of the primates of the world and the threats they are facing. 

On the tours you can expect to see a variety of primates, ranging from the Gibbons of Asia to the Lemurs of Madagascar. The knowledgeable rangers will tell you all about these fascinating mammals as you encounter them roaming free in the forest. They also point out, identify and explain the many wonders of life in the forest, from the rich diversity of bird life to the intricate workings of the forest itself.

Although not necessary, but to accommodate different languages, it is preferable that we book this activity in advance
