We weren't expecting anything from this visit. Instead, this trip was a real surprise. Maria, the guide, is a lovely lady who explains everything with so much passion. It's a great initiative we all have to support. Go and see for yourselves.

I visited the Colobus Conservation during my recent stay in Diani. The trust does great work helping the monkeys. We also saw 2 Colobus in the trees of the Conservation. Your money really goes for a good purpose, please visit.

We visited the conservancy as a family activity. Their staff were welcoming and extremely knowledgeable about the primates in the sanctuary, the local flora/fauna and what measures have been put in place to manage human/wildlife conflict in Diani. Great place to go; fantastic for children.

There’s no harm in letting them know you’re coming as they get lots of school visits, but they didn’t have specific tour times, so let them know when is best for you and I’m sure you can arrange a good time. Enjoy it!
