At Monkey Forest the Barbary macaques roam freely in a 60 acre forest. As you enter the park you can observe the monkeys living as they would in the Atlas mountains of Algeria and Morocco.
The two groups come from our existing parks in France and Germany, the monkeys have lived all their lives in a similar setting where we intervene as little as possible.
Unique in the UK!
Monkey forest is set in 60 acres of beautiful Staffordshire woodland and meadows where 140 monkeys live in total freedom. You are plunged into the Barbary macaques fascinating world as you hear rustling in the trees, chattering in a strange language and see the monkeys crashing through branches.
Walking along the path you are transported into a different world of animal magic!
Stunning Staffordshire Woodland
A 3/4 mile winding forest path takes you through the splendid forest of Trentham Estate woodlands where the monkeys live. The monkeys roam freely meaning you may even see one of them walk across the path in front of you!
Information in the forest
Information boards, video documentaries and pure observation will give you a fascinating insite into these amazing primates. Guides are situated along the path to explain the monkey's behaviour happening before your eyes. Why is this baby being carried by a male? What are the monkeys picking up from the ground? Where do they spend the winter? The guides have all the answers!
