Attraction Information

Apes are beautiful, intelligent creatures that deserve a safe home, which is exactly what they get at Monkey World - Ape Rescue Centre.

There are more than 250 primates of over 20 different species at this sanctuary for rescued primates. Many who arrive at the centre have suffered abuse or neglect and are slowly rehabilitated to live in family groups within the 65 acres of beautiful countryside.

Guided tours and talks give interesting and personable information about the many different species, personalities and stories that thrive here, raising awareness of the need to protect these amazing animals. Kids will also enjoy the Great Ape Play area, which is the largest adventure play area in the South, a choice of three cafes and lots of lovely picnic spots.

Making a difference to the monkeys on this cheeky and cheerful day out!
