    What to Expect
    Visit: La Foret des Singes, 46500 Rocamadour France

    ‘La Forêt des Singes’ is home to 150 Barbary macaques (also known as Magots). Step inside the reserve and enjoy privileged insight into this fascinating animal society living in conditions similar to the wild. Learn all about the monkeys’ social life as you stroll in their midst.


    The beauty of the setting aside, you will immediately be struck by the well-being of the animals. And how could it be otherwise? After all, at ‘La Forêt des Singes’ the animals are king. Vast areas are provided to ensure the monkeys’ peace and quiet. Their diet is well balanced, they are safe from predators and can roam freely.


    Scientists have been studying the social behaviour of the highly evolved Barbary macaque since 1974.Our guides will be happy to share the results of these studies with you and provide you with first hand information.


    ‘La Forêt des Singes’ is actively involved in the preservation of the Barbary macaque, a threatened species, by:
    • raising public awareness about the threats to the species
    • reintroducing entire groups to their original habitats
    • sponsoring Barbary macaque conservation associations and conducting ethological research


    ‘La Forêt des Singes’ opened in Rocamadour in 1974. Together with the following 3 parks it forms a group sharing the same concept:
    • La Montagne des Singes (France) founded in 1969,
    • Affenberg Salem (Germany) ) founded in 1976,
    • Trentham Monkey Forest (England) founded in 2005.

    Monkey Jungle ( as we were told it translates to in English ) allows you to not only see Barbary macaques up close but also to actually feed them ! If you try this in Gibraltar they will most likely run off with your bag , here they are so gentle & take a piece of popcorn out of

    After visiting Rocamadour, we spent around 90 minutes at this forest. The monkeys are tame and you can hand popcorn to them, which they take calmly from your hand. It was lovely to walk amongst them. Plenty of park staff ensure everyone is following the rules. There were lots of

    Excellent natural setting to see these monkeys. Young children must be well supervised as the monkeys are roaming free. You can hand feed them with the popcorn provided as part of the entrance fee. They are very gentle. The talk re the research etc was informative.
