Monkey Town review Rate it

About 40km (25 miles) out of the city, Monkey Town is worth popping into: the park is home to 230 primates of 27 different species, ranging from hamadryas baboons, lemurs and lion-tailed macaques to African favourites like vervet monkeys and chimpanzees.

I would like to work with monkeys because they make me happy whenever I see them. If you give me the oppertunity to work there I would do it for free no charge just to hold a monkey. I am 13 years old and willing to get a job at " monkey town". During school holidays only. Thanks for your co-operation!
