Fodor's Review

This refuge is houses abused and abandoned primates, most of which were once pets or laboratory animals. They now roam in a huge enclosed area of natural forest and are free to play, socialize, and do whatever it is that keeps primates happy. There are lemurs, gibbons, spider monkeys, indigenous vervet monkeys, howler monkeys, and many more. Guided walks are offered throughout the day, and the tamer "inmates" often play with guests. You can also just visit the coffee shop without paying an entrance fee.
