    Visit Monkeyland Primate sanctuary.

    by linnyloo Updated Apr 4, 2011

    Situated in an eco-sensitive location, 16 km East of Plettenberg Bay.
    Monkeyland opened its doors to the public on the 6th of April 1998. The unique primate sanctuary is currently the top eco-tourism attraction on the Garden Route. Monkeyland has captured the hearts of visitors in its efforts to rehabilitate and free previously caged primates. The sanctuary is exceptional as it caters for several species of primateswho are not caged. They are free to move about the forest and this they do most harmoniously.
    The safaris are conducted by multi-lingual game rangers and are fun, exciting and educational. Guests leave the sanctuary with a greater understanding of the primates of the world and the threats they are facing.
    On the guided safaris you can expect to see a variety of primates, ranging from the Gibbons of Asia to the Lemurs of Madagascar. The knowledgeable rangers will tell you all about these fascinating mammals as you encounter them roaming free in the forest. They also point out, identify and explain the many wonders of life in the forest, from the rich diversity of bird life to the intricate workings of the forest itself.

    Another must see when in this region is the old Big tree. It is an Outeniqua Yellow wood tree that is estimated to be over 800 years old.

    When my friend told me about the map of Africa, I was very intrigued. A great surprise was waiting for me just outside of Wilderness when I saw this gift of God.
