  • Of course, there is something lucky to be, but we had a lead for two could see many monkeys very close and learned a lot. For this purpose, the guided tour was offered directly to us in German. That's why it's great.

  • A little hidden gem that not everyone knows, but which - in my opinion - can not be left out. A few miles from Plettenberg is this small park where monkeys and lemurs spin and play undisturbed. The visit of the park costs about 13 euros per person with mandatory guide that explains the various species of monkeys and introduces us to their natural environment. Absolutely not to be missed!
