Monkey World: More than just an extraordinary experience
In Northern Zealand you find Monkey World – A refuge for rescued animal as well as people who need to find their right shelf in life.
Just a few kilometres outside of Hillerød in Northern Zealand, you will find a Japanese garden called Monkey World. Monkey World is a private refuge for all sorts of animals that have one thing in common – They have had a rough life. But that doesn’t mean that the animals are scared or aggressive. Quite the opposite in fact.
Even though you will get to meet a bunnie with no ears or one-legged parrots, these animals are ready to let you get close. So close, in fact, that they will eat off of your hand and sit on your shoulders. One of the main reasons for this is of course the Team Monkey World, who put their heart and soul into giving these animals another chance at a good life.
Now, you might think that Monkey World is a small zoo. But actually, it is very far from it. Monkey World has a very different purpose – helping those, who for one reason or another have trouble finding their right place in life. This could be young people having a hard time getting an education, due to either social problems, mental illness or something entirely different.
No matter the problem, Monkey World serves as a safe haven. Here they have the opportunity to come and study in a safe and peaceful environment. Or socially vulnerable people – young and old – are invited in to be part of something other than just a system that often fails them.
But all of this is privately funded, which is why Monkey World is open to the public. This gives you the opportunity to pet a monkey, hand feed a blue macaw or play ball with the goats. All while you support one of the most important causes in any community.
Monkey World is open every day, all SUMMER , from 11 am until 3 pm. And during the entire month of may & june there is free slush ice for all the visiting children.
