Monkey Haven is a rescue centre and sanctuary for primates and birds of prey who are in desperate need of care and attention. Animals and birds include: Muller's gibbons, Rhesus macaques, White-throated capuchins, Siamang gibbons, Marmosets, Lan Gibbons, Barn owls, Kookaburras, Bengal eagle owls, Boat constrictor, Tortoise and Meerkats.
The Reptile Lodge houses our small selection of rescued reptiles. There’s also an interactive map, plus activities including quiz trails and colouring fun.
The Cheeky Monkeys play area is a super-fun area for our smallest visitors. It features bubble cars, tricycles, springies, and a slide and play hut. Parents can watch their children play from the decking area or tea room conservatory.
The Funky Monkey play area is the largest play area for children, with rope bridges, slides, swings, towers and a see-saw. It’s designed to look like a monkey enclosure, complete with a Homo sapiens information board. The squidgy floor is made from 100% recycled aircraft tyres, to help your little ones bounce back from any tumbles. It’s situated near the noisy Lar Gibbons.
Our newly refurbished tea room has been named after one of our most popular monkeys – a sweet Siamang called Xhabu. We offer coffee, tea, sandwiches, cakes, ice creams, snacks and drinks. There’s indoor and outdoor seating, and a viewing conservatory that’s adjacent to the ‘Cheeky Monkey’ play area so parents can relax while watching their little ones play.
Our great shop is packed with fun souvenirs, presents and pocket money toys, including cuddly monkeys, key rings, postcards, jewellery, garden ornaments and magnets. You can also drop in here to adopt one of our adorable animals. 100% of the revenue from adoptions goes straight into the Leaf Foundation, our charitable organisation.
