Visiting the park helps to support the centre’s rescue operation – It does not receive any outside funding, and yet is known as the world’s biggest primate rescue centre of its kind, assisting governments worldwide to stop the black market trade in endangered primates.

There’s plenty to do at Monkey World. There are regular keeper talks throughout the day. The keeper often has food to bring the primates closer. There are three adventure playgrounds, the largest being the Great Ape Play Area at the far end of the park and a couple of cafes. Many picnic areas are situated throughout the park.
