VISITING ‘LA FORÊT DES SINGES’

Grab your camera and step inside the fascinating world of more than 150 Barbary macaques roaming freely in 20 hectares of forest.

Enjoy the thrilling chance to observe the monkeys and the incredible close-up contact with them as they take the popcorn provided at the entrance right out of your hand!

DON’T MISS
OUR FEEDING TALKS

Feeding sessions are held by our guides at regular intervals (every 45mins).
Besides seeing the monkeys being fed, you will also be given fascinating information about a threatened species, classified as “endangered”.

HELPFUL GUIDES

The guides along the route are not only there to keep a watchful eye- they will also answer any questions you may have and explain the behaviour of the monkeys.

LOOKING TO MAKE DISCOVERY MORE FUN?

Take part in our quiz, available in English, German and French! Enjoy some family fun with the chance of winning a cuddly Barbary macaque mascot. The draw takes place at the end of each month. Don’t miss it!
