Covering about 7 ha, this privately owned, non-subsidised sanctuary offers refuge for primates in one of the 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.
With the help of Monkey Sanctuary Hartbeespoort, primates, such as our squirrel, spider and capuchin monkeys, are given a new lease on life!
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.

Dit was fantasties! Dit is die 5de keer dat ek daar was en elke keer is 'n belewenis. Ek het verskeie mense aan van julle vertel en na julle verwys. Meeste van my familie en vriende het julle al kom besoek. so bly julle kyk so mooi na al die diertjies.
IT WAS A PLEASANT DAY OUT, ESPECIALLY FOR OUR OVERSEAS VISITORS.
An unforgettable and informative experience where the monkeys enjoy the visitors as much as the visitors enjoy the monkeys!! There is great comfort in the knowledge that there are sanctuaries that care so much for our wildlife.
