Entry to Monkeyland is free; this entitles you to spend time on the forest deck, which also doubles as a restaurant named The Blue Monkey Cafe.
From this area primates moving about the forest are always seen, and heard. The only charge is to go on a monkey safari (optional) with one of our game rangers, this is a foot safari into the forest where the primates have been released and are free roaming. The rangers will track the primates down & impart interesting information about them, the forest and anything else you come across. Part of the safari is across our 128 m canopy walk, which actually rises above the forest canopy for a birds eye view of this primate paradise.
These walking safaris last an hour, and depart from reception each half hour. The tours depart daily, every half hour and are open-ended which means that you can go on more than one tour on the day you are visiting us.
Our safari guides are multi-lingual, languages spoken include German, Spanish, Italian, Dutch, French, Xhosa and Finnish. Language specific tours can be arranged by contacting our front office or Lara (our marketing manager)
Birds of Eden is situated next to Monkeyland, and similar to Monkeyland requires no pre-booking unless a multi-lingual guide is required for a guided tour. The difference between Monkeyland and Birds of Eden is that you are able to stroll about the bird sanctuary without a safari guide whereas you cannot do so at Monkeyland.
