The Hidden Forest Wildlife Sanctuary

The Hidden Forest Wildlife Sanctuary (formerly Monkeyland-KZN) is a free-roaming multi-specie primate sanctuary near Ballito, KwaZulu-Natal. It’s mission is to educate and foster greater understanding of our primate cousins and the threats and challenges they are facing.
