Originally opened back in 1987 to be a home to abused Spanish beach chimpanzees, Monkey World, set in 65 acres of beautiful Dorset woodland, has now expanded to become a sanctuary for monkeys and apes from across the globe. These days there are more than 250 primates of more than 20 different species and the site is now the largest of its kind in the world. Residents include the chimps, orang-utans, gibbons, woolly monkeys, capuchin monkeys, marmosets, squirrel monkeys, cotton-top tamarins, ring-tailed lemurs, white-faced saki monkeys, spider monkeys, patas monkeys and stump tailed macaques. Don’t miss the half hourly talks which explain everything you ever wanted to know about man’s closest living relative. With excellent facilities including play areas, cafes, ice-cream kiosks, baby-changing areas, a viewing tower and a picnic area, this makes for a lovely day out with the family.
