A couple years ago we visited Apenheul which is a massive monkey park in the Netherlands. It’s designed so you can walk among 200 free ranging monkeys! It’s extremely safe and loads of fun. The free ranging monkeys are mostly small kinds like Spider monkeys. Bigger primates like baboons and gorillas are on islands where you can watch from a close but safe distance. Apenheul is easy to get to within an hour from Amsterda, Utrecht or Nijmegen. If you’re traveling with kids or have an extra day or so during your stay in the Netherlands it’s definitely worth a visit! Be prepared to spend the day because this park is huge and you’ll want to see everything 🙂 Here are a few pictures I took that day of the gorillas.
Love this video of a gorilla encounter. Would love to try that out one day but I think I’d probably get a heart attack on the spot from the excitement 😀
