Description

At the ‘Forêt des Singes’ the Barbary Macaques reign supreme. Enter the park and feel privileged to witness this fascinating animal society which evolves almost as in the wild. No cages or barriers here but monkeys ranging freely on what has been their domain since 1974.

The site of the park is beautiful, but it is the well-being of the monkeys that strikes the visitor straight away. Here, the animals are king.

They enjoy a large area and can distance themselves from the general public if they wish; they are fed, there is no fear of predators within the confines of the park and they do develop in complete freedom.

Whether you are a fan of information boards or video documentaries or prefer pure observation, you will find the level of information you seek in the park.
Guides are positioned along the path to explain the behaviour you observe. Why is this baby being carried by a male? Are there chiefs? Where do the monkeys spend the winter? The guides have all answers so don’t be shy.
