We very much enjoyed our trip to Monkey Haven - well worth the money. Listening to the two sets of gibbons 'sing' was truly amazing. A well laid out great place.

Good fun, animals all looked happy and the staff were very polite and professional, only downside was that the whole attraction was quite short even though we took our time and didn't rush. There is alot of information about the different animals around the park as well as a booklet which was quite detailed.

You'll be certain to want to... More

What a lovely way to spend a morning! We loved watching the different monkeys and listening to their individual stories, told so well by Charlotte who was really knowledgable and clearly passionate about the work they do there. So glad we came!

Visited here in March, we were the first ones through the gate so had the Haven all to ourselves for a little while. It is lovely to see rescued animals. This park is quite small and we spent about an hour and a half there.
