Monkey Haven

About

Swing on by to Monkey Haven – the happiest attraction in town! You’ll meet all kinds of wonderful creatures at this popular animal sanctuary, including the singing Lar Gibbons, cheeky Meerkats, slithering snakes and the cutest owlets.

The primate rescue centre, just outside Newport, makes animals happy – and people happy. We’re in TripAdvisor’s Hall of Fame plus we were the Best Small Attraction in England according to the tourism chiefs at VisitEngland.

There’s so much to see and do including...
• Download our FREE awesome App. Follow trails, collect virtual bananas, get sneaky behind the scenes, and take silly selfies! Check it out to plan your visit – or download it at the park where there’s free Wifi.
• Meet new rescued animals, including Djimmy, Buna ...and their squeaky toy pig!
• ‘Have a hoot with the owls’ - Meet Ketch, Beau and adorable new baby Barn owls, Wisp and Casper, at the daily owl talks.
• FREE booklet of monkey puzzles for kids including a tiny treat trail.
• Two great play areas for children (under 5’s and over 5’s).
• New ice cream lodge

There are Keeper Talks and animal Feeds throughout the day, where you can find out all about our awesome animals and how they came to be there. You can also get up close to hand-reared birds of prey at the daily talks – just pop along to ‘Have a hoot with the owls’. The baby Barn Owls, Wisp and Casper, are a big hit this year. They’re being hand reared by the Keepers, as their Mum rejected the eggs – and they’re super cute! Also don’t miss seeing the gorgeous Boobook and Rufous- legged Owls in their posh new aviary, or get up close to a snake at Reptile Rendezvous – they’re much softer and more playful than you might expect!

Our mission is to provide a happy Haven for rescued animals. Many of the animals we care for have been rescued from the cruel pet trade and are very rare.  Recent rescues include Djimmy and Buna, the Cherry-crowned Mangabeys ...and their squeaky toy pig! They’re causing quite a sensation as Djimmy loves to cuddle his pigs, and naughty Buna loves to destroy them! So we get through quite a few!

There are two great play areas for children and free kids activity booklets, including a tiny treat trail! Our top tip would be to download the fun, free App to plan your visit, follow a banana trail, see behind the scenes and take silly selfies.

Facilities also include a lovely tea room, gift shop, free Wifi, pushchair friendly paths, full disabled access, free parking – and all tickets are valid for a free return within a week.

Monkey Haven is a registered charity and all proceeds from your visit will go towards caring for the adorable animals that you’ll meet and help us rescue even more creatures in crisis.

So go and hang out, have fun, and monkey around this summer! * Visit monkeyhaven.org
