Free-living monkeys in a natural and wild environment!
Walk through natural indigenous forests on elevated wooden walkways and experience a variety of exotic monkeys in an exquisite natural environment. The experience is described as a non-interactive game-viewing opportunity to see once-captive primates in a wild environment. Tours are highly informative and the walk is leisurely, winding its way through a tranquil forest.
Bush Babies Monkey Sanctuary is one of only eight free-release primate sanctuaries globally. Our primates are received on the basis of public donation and supported by funding generated by our guided tours and the sales of our curios.
Primates, such as our squirrel and capuchin monkeys, are given a new lease on life at Bush Babies. Previously raised as household pets or bred for the pet trade, our monkeys are introduced to a wild world laden with waterfalls, lush vegetation, natural mountain springs and the chance to reside in as natural an environment as possible. Our goal is to give them the opportunity to live as they would in the wild.
