“Excellent habitat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2014

This is the ideal place for these animals. It's so well thought out and I loved reading the rescue stories of all the monkeys. It's set out so we could easily find our way round. Loved it. Good job!!

“Return visit. ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2014 via mobile

Once again a great visit with brilliant exhibits & friendly staff. On the minus side are the maps. I drive all over the country but have great difficulty with the maps supplied. Fear we may well be missing some of the exhibits because of this. But will be back for 3rd visit.

“Great day out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2014

I took my girlfriend here on a spontaneous urge. We arrived about 3 hours after the opening time to find it was absolutely dead, we couldn't believe our luck.

It was so nice to stroll around at a leisurely pace, enjoying each species of monkey in turn whilst learning about all the good that Monkey World has done over the years.

Some of the monkeys were thoroughly entertaining, showing off and playing up to the fact they had an audience which resulted in some fantastic videos.

The downer I could find is the fact that because it wasn't so busy, very few of the cafe/refreshment places were open.

All in all a great day out for couples and families alike.

“Annual visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2014

We have been supporting Monkey World for many years by various members of the Family adopting a chimp or an orangutang ,this is an ape rescue centre that does a fantastic job and we make the long journey from Derbyshire once a year to Dorset and this is always our first stop. The apes are very well cared for and you can easily spend a day here reading about individuals and how they came to be here and watching their antics,well worth a visit a suitable day out for any age.

“HANANYA, BUTCH AND PADDY!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2014

Love this place been three times so far as we sponsor the three alpha males!! Staff are amazing, really pleasant and willing to help. Cafe has got everything you need and the shop is fantastic with so many souvenirs to be found. Always have a good time here and stay in the local area which is lovely in itself. Monkeys are really well cared for and you can see how much work the staff put in to their care and comfort. Met Jeremy on all occasions and he's always happy to pose with us for a picture as are the Monkeys!! Will be going back again in the near future, hope it stays the same! Really Cheap entrance fee and sponsorship fees. Great for all ages and families, couples and friends. Really good place to visit and they're all doing a great job :D
