“Homely Monkey Manor Hosts add value to Monkey Town”

Monkey Town Primate Centre

Attraction details
Reviewed 20 August 2014

We spent a night at the Monkey Manor a Guest House and then did a tour of the Monkey Town Primate centre. Rose and Daan know how to make you feel like honored guests yet as at home as home can be. The visit to the a Primate centre was in a sense, therapeutic. Most of the animals have a large degree of freedom while the visitors to their space can enjoy them from the caged pathways and archways. The weather was perfect for our outdoor activity. Loved the combo of exploring both guest house and the centre. We are sure the guest house and surrounds which are children friendly, will be far more popular with some TLC .

We loved the informality of it and the monkeys seemed to be well cared for. There was more to see than I had initially thought on entering the place. We arrived just before 1 pm, in time for the feeding of the three adult chimpanzees. There are over 250 monkeys to see. Besides the monkeys there are also some lovely parrots. A visit is enjoyable for both children and adults. Overall we spent about 2 hours at Monkey Town. Well worth a vist and clearly signposted just off the N2 at Somerset West.

This is a great place to spend a few hours. Easy trip from CT along the N2 to Somerset West, but make sure you get good directions or you could miss the turning. I visited a few years ago, but must say that the place looked better this time around - cleaner and better cared for. Great to enjoy the experience of feeding the squirrel and wolf monkeys, although the lemurs didn't want to show their faces :( Guide was excellent and funny too! Cafe was closed when we visited, but it didn't matter as we had taken a picnic and sat in the play park area. Well worth a few hours.

A very enjoyable experience. There are loads of monkeys and birds to keep you entertained for a few hours. The enclosures are well laid out especially the 'jungle one' where the monkey's have loads of space and trees and it is you that is walking in an enclosure. Try visit over lunch time when a lot of the monkeys are been fed. Kids loved the gorrilla who kept spitting at them.
