Monkeylandkzn In A Nutshell
Monkeyland in Plettenberg Bay is the world’s first free-roaming multi-species primate sanctuary, and MonkeylandKZN is this much-loved primate sanctuary’s new sister sanctuary – to be opened 20 years later, in the Ballito region of KwaZulu Natal.
MonkeylandKZN will offer tours (we call them monkey safaris) during which you will see many species of primates comprising of capuchin monkeys, ringtail and black-and-white ruffed lemurs, buffy-cheeked gibbons, squirrel monkeys and howler monkeys in their jungle home. You will also experience countless other natural wonders whilst on your walking tour, my favourate being the criss-cross bridge walks over the river of dreams. There’s a restaurant at the reception area, a souvenir store, ethic home crafters village, a Zulu village, children’s play area and an environmental theatre.
MonkeylandKZN is a must to visit when holidaying in KwaZulu Natal. The Sanctuary is open daily from 8am with the last access to tours at 5pm. Tours depart every 15min from reception. Tours are predominantly conducted in English. We do also offer language-specific tours, but these need to be requested in advance.
It is also good to know that MonkeylandKZN is 100% family-friendly, wheelchair accessible and can be visited any day of the year because it is an all-weather eco-attraction.
Please note: We have a strict no-touch policy at all our sanctuaries. Look, photograph, video, but please don’t touch.
