Garden Route Tours, Monkeyland, Plettenberg Bay

Monkeyland is found very close to Plettenberg Bay as you travel along the N2 motorway along The Garden Route from Cape Town. Situated in The Crags, it is one of many wildlife options guests on our Garden Route tours can choose from. It is a fun activity for young, old, and wildlife or nature lovers. Monkeyland is a sanctuary for primates who strive to do something positive in the rehabilitation of monkeys.

Monkeyland was opened 1998 and became an instant highlight and place of interest on The Garden Route. The sanctuary has entertained many visitors in an effort to take care and provide a new home to primates who previously lived in cages, zoo's, circuses or given to them as unwanted pets. In Monkeyland the primates are free to roam about the forest and live together in harmony.

At Monkeyland the emphasis are on trying to find the primates during the guided tours, and the reward is to experience the different species as they live freely and in a natural habitat. The monkey tours are done professional guides and are fun, exciting and educational. Visitors to Monkeyland leave the sanctuary with a clear understanding of the threats faced by primates in the Garden Route area and surrounds.

The guided tours takes you through the forest as you try and spot some Gibbons, Lemurs, Tortoises and more. It is important that we remain aware of the world's environmental issues and that is where places like Monkeyland plays a pivotal role. Monkeyland assists in preserving the beauty of The Garden Route. The word sanctuary is often misunderstood as simply a place where animals are protected from hunting, but in reality a sanctuary is also a place of refuge to protect the animals from abuse and neglegence. You will find a number of these sanctuaries and facilities along the Garden Route where many different tours will take you on an educational trip.

Monkeyland is a very comfortable lunch stop on many of our Garden Route tours. It has a restaurant with light lunches, snacks and drinks. One can also find other stops of interests in the vicinity such as Birds of Eden or Elephant encounters. For guests truly interested in wildlife and animal encounters, we suggest booking one of our private Garden Route tours as we will make time in The Crags for you to spend the whole day there!
