As a thank you for the sponsorship, we were invited down to Monkey World for a guided tour.
On Sunday 12th July 2015 we took up the rather generous offer and had a fantastic guided tour with Mike Colbourne. Mike has been working with great apes since 1960 and has worked at Monkey World since 1997.
It was a slightly wet and miserable day, but Mike was a fantastic host. He drove us around in his golf cart, and we felt rather special. Especially as everybody recognised him from the Monkey Life TV show.
Despite it being slightly wet, the residents were on top form, and we got some great pictures. Here are a few of them.
With the summer holidays just around the corner, I can highly recommend a visit to Monkey World if you are looking for something to do while supporting a great cause.
