The Monkey Sanctuary is one of several sanctuaries in a group of sanctuaries, including the elephant sanctuary that provides for orphaned and abused animals. Situated west of Hartbeesport Dam alongside the Elephant sanctuary it provides an environment where monkeys (primates) can be given their freedom in a natural environment. The sanctuary situated in one of the many Kloofs (Gorges) of the Magaliesberg mountain range provides the perfect environment for Monkeys from around the world.

Upon arrival Sune could not assist us immediately. Koos offered to assist us and he was very helpful and friendly. A beautiful, neat venue for any event.

Worth the entrance fee to have a very close encounter with the monkeys. Charlie was knowledgeable and made our tour that much better. Definitely a must-do if you're in and around Joburg.
