The Bush Babies Monkey Sanctuary has recently opened in Hartebeespoort, about an hour from both Johannesburg and Pretoria. The facility, located next to The Elephant Sanctuary on the R512 Rustenburg / Sun City Road, takes in rescued monkeys that have been raised as pets or have been bred or imported for the pet trade. The sanctuar already offers a new home to nearly 70 rescued primates.
The facility then rehabilitates them and releases them back into a wild forest.
Guided tours are available seven days a week with the first tour starting at 8.30 am and the last tour at 4 pm. The facility is ideal for families.
