Swing on by to Monkey Haven – and fall in love with the rescued monkeys, owls, meerkats and other exotic creatures. We’re hosting a Love Week during half term (15th – 23rd February). There will be rescue stories to warm your heart, plus the award-winning Keeper talks will focus on love in its many forms. You’ll hear about romances, bromances, monkeys who’ve found lasting happiness with other animals… and in Djimmy’s case – with a squeaky toy pig!
You’ll also love these extra treats – which are designed to be shared with someone special.
♥ Squirrel Monkey Encounters ♥
Specially for Love Week, we’ll be offering encounters with our gorgeous rescued Squirrel Monkeys. You can see these little sweeties in the slideshow above. These inquisitive creatures are very friendly. They love interacting with people and the encounters are a good form of enrichment for them too. We once had someone propose during a Squirrel Monkey encounter… will that happen again this year?
For £100 you can buy a memorable encounter for two people that includes:
♥ Entrance to the Haven
♥ A 20 minute encounter with the Squirrel Monkeys
♥ A chance to feed and interact with these cute animals, guided by one of our lovely Keepers.
♥ Photos of your special experience on a Haven memory stick
♥ Cream Tea for two in our Tea Room.
The small print: Tel: 01983 530885 to make a booking. Terms and conditions apply. You need to be over 18 years of age. You’ll be given a health and safety briefing before meeting the monkeys. All bookings must be booked in advance. There are only two encounter slots per day (one in the morning, and one in the afternoon) but you are welcome to spend all day at the Haven.
♥ Valentine’s adoptions and hampers ♥
