Meet new friends in Primate Centre

Monkey Town Primate Centre, located on the N2 in Somerset West is a Wildlife Centre for monkeys and apes as well as a large variety of other species of animals. There are more than 250 primates and 26 different exotic species of monkeys and apes including Tammy, Ruby, and Sunny, our famous chimp sisters.

Monkey Town is not just a primate centre but also a wildlife centre with over 700 animals in total to admire.

Help the Cheetahs

Cheetah Outreach in Somerset West / Strand is an education and community-based programme created to raise awareness of the plight of the cheetah and to campaign for its survival. It took 4 million years of evolution for the cheetah to become the exceptional animal it is today and only 100 years for man to place it on the endangered list. This Selfie is the money worth!
