About the primates at Monkey World?

Monkey World – Ape Rescue Centre is home to over 240 rescued and endangered primates including the largest group of chimpanzees outside of Africa, living in 4 different social groups, 5 different species of gibbon, 8 species of monkeys and 3 groups of orang-utans at the park, including Europe’s only Orang-utan Crèche.

FAQs

Can we touch or hold the primates?

Primates can catch the same viruses as humans (e.g. colds and flu), which can be potentially dangerous to them, so limiting the number of people they come into contact with helps to ensure their good health. Therefore, Monkey World does not allow visitor to touch or hold any primates.
