Take a side trip to the Atlas Mountains without leaving the region. Escape into the world of the Barbary Macaque. Wander through 60 acres of pristine forest to observe free roaming macaques frolic and play with their young and interact with their troupes in a natural setting. The Barbary Macaque is the only free-living primate in Europe, and La montagne des singes or "Monkey Mountain" is dedicated to the protection and conservation of these feisty primates. Make sure to purchase bags of popcorn at the front gate or, if you’re too shy, enjoy watching any number of feedings throughout the day. Listen in as guides and conservationists discuss the importance of preserving the species.

La montagne des singes reviews
The monkeys are kept in a park which replicates their natural habitat and hierarchy as much as possible. They are curious, look healthy and are completely free to roam the park. Nice experience. more »
We were amazed by the level of service given by the staff. The park is super clean, the monkeys are peaceful and not bothered by visitors. Few animations for kids. Snacks are very good, generous and..... more »
Amazing to walk with be able to feed the monkeys. Staff were attentive and all around the park to look out for the public. Reasonably priced. Very reassuring. Shame all the talks were in French only. Really enjoyed the visit.
The shelter is very nice. The staff very professional and helpful. The monkeys are so cute. Recommended for a couple of hours.
