Educational and interactive tours for all ages, from gan children up to retirees.

During your tour, you will get to know some of the monkeys and their background. The monkeys that live at the sanctuary are exclusively ones that needed help, and were given a professional, warm and loving home at the sanctuary.

The tour includes: huge gymboree, extreme sports, craft area and additional activities according to season.

The Israel Primate Sanctuary is a non-profit organization, that focuses on the rescue and rehabilitation of monkeys.

Monkeys that come to the sanctuary include those taken out of research laboratories, those smuggled in to the country and kept in difficult conditions, monkeys that people illegally tried to raise in their homes in a futile attempt to make them into pets, and any other monkey in distress.

At the 'Monkey School', at the sanctuary, the monkeys are taught how to reintegrate into the company of other monkeys, which is so important for their mental health. A section of the sanctuary is open to visitors
