September for Seniors

September for Seniors

About

Monkey World is celebrating our seniors this September, so any visitor over 65 will get half price entry to the park! Treetops café will also be running special meal deals throughout September too!
Simply claim the discount at the entrance gate on arrival.
This fab offer means that our older & wiser visitors can enjoy the park after the hustle & bustle of the summer holidays has calmed down.
Come and see our 260 rescued and endangered primates, including chimpanzee Bixa, who at 42 is the oldest chimp at the park! Primate Care Staff work hard to ensure the older generation of apes and monkeys are active, comfortable and enjoying life. Learn how they do this through our free keeper talks every half hour from 12:30pm.

Monkey World provides sanctuary to over 260 rescued and endangered primates of 22 different species. The expert team of primate care staff rehabilitate and integrate the animals into natural living groups. The park is open every day to visitors, and provides fun and education to people of all ages.

For those planning multiple visits over the year, an adoption pass is a great way to make the pennies go further- as well as helping fund future rescue and rehabilitation work. For just £25 for a child, the adoptive parent will receive a certificate, photo, 3 newsletters a year and entry pass to the park for a whole year!
