Reasons for trip

A sanctuary and rescue centre for abused Monkeys. Over 240 primates live in the park and I quite happily spent the whole day looking and watching them,chimpanzees,Orangs,Gibbons, Lemurs, marmosets and marcaques are all there. The Chimp and Orang Nurseries are not to be missed. Food and refreshments are available at the "Treetops" cafe near the entrance (V.Busy w/e lunchtimes), there is another outlet "Mallagassy" Cafe- mid park. Food is reasonably priced.Gift shop with a large range of Monkey gifts. All the staff, throughout the park,are friendly,Knowledgeable and helpful but be aware that their priority is the Monkeys.Staff talks are made around the centre at advertised times. There can be quite a bit of walking involved but seats and benches are scattered around the site.Disabled access is very good, except for the "Woodland walk" motorised scooters were available, free to use but deposit required. Lavatories are near the entrance and near the Mallagassey cafe. Monkey world is not a charity but runs on entrance fees and donations. There are 2 childrens play areas, one near the entrance and won at the far end of the site. Ice cream/snack kiosks scattered around. Entrance is £11.25 per adult, Seniors/Juniors and disabled – £8. Open 10am to 5pm (You will wonder where the time went).
