How to Enjoy Monkey Sanctuary

The Monkey sanctuary is one of several sanctuaries in a group of sanctuaries, including the elephant sanctuary that provides for orphaned and abused animals. Situated west of Hartbeesport Dam alongside the Elephant sanctuary it provides an environment where monkeys (primates) can be given their freedom in a natural environment. The sanctuary situated in one of the many Kloofs (Gorges) of the Magaliesberg mountain range provides the perfect environment for Monkeys from around the world.

Tours of the Monkey Sanctuary take place seven days a week, and are led by knowledgeable guides through indigenous forests on elevated wooden walkways, past waterfalls and even through the treetops.

I really enjoyed visiting the monkey sanctuary. It was lovely to be in the monkey's environment and see how they behave and go about their daily shenanigans. The up close interactions when the monkeys jumped on us and tried to "pick our pockets" was a memory I will cherish forever. The enclosure was beautiful, big and well maintained. Thank you!

Great eperience interacting with the monkeys. The tour guide has an excellent relationship with the animals, and shared very intense history and knowledge about each one of them.
