Monkey Haven, on the Isle of Wight, is an award-winning primate rescue centre.
They specialise in taking on primates (and a few other animals) that have been rescued from the illegal pet trade, street pedlars, or from other zoos, where for whatever reason, the monkey was being bullied by the others. These are all monkeys that cannot be rehabilitated into the wild, and so Monkey Haven creates a home for them.

Our Review

We really enjoyed our visit to Monkey Haven.

Monkey eating on food

Feeding time! The keepers give some great talks during feeding time.

It was clear that the keepers really care for their animals, and the talks they gave were excellent. The information boards were great too, with individual details about each monkey, including what they like and dislike.

They have some really interesting characters, like Djimmy, who loves his plastic pig toy. Unfortunately, the monkey he shares the cage with is jealous of the attention that he gives his toys, and so she tries to destroy them any chance she gets!

Djimmy loves his plastic pig!

It’s not just monkeys. There are meerkats, reptiles, owls, and a few other birds too.

Ahh…this is the life!

Monkey Haven isn’t a large zoo, and so you probably wouldn’t spend all day there. But there is a play park, cafe, and plenty of keeper talks to keep the kids entertained and informed 😉
