Had a great time strolling through the park with a very knowledgeable and dedicated guide. Worth the visit, for the cause, the stories behind these rescued animals...and the café has great food and drinks!!!

This rescue center handles orphaned, endangered and hurt animals only from Cameroon. They have over a dozen primate species including silver back apes, mandrills and chimpanzees, The Center is clean, the animals look healthy and the tour guide was excellent. Great place to visit.

As has been just said, to think of this as a zoo is completely wrong. This is a sanctuary for amazing primates who would otherwise be death, mainly thanks to humans. A zoo is there for humans, this is there for the animals. It is...More

Good primate exhibit. I was happily impressed by the quality of the Limbe Zoo. It focuses mostly on primates: gorillas, chimpanzees, baboons, drills, mandrills, but it also has a Nile crocodile, python, and even Duiker bucks. My favorite was the mandrill attraction. I had always...More

If you like different views of primates, this is a good Cameroonian example of a few different examples. The Drill/Mandrill are the star for me! These are the colorfully and actively moving monkey that's exhibited. Non nationals pay 3,000 CFA and cameras are allowed. There's...More
