Monkey World and Bournemouth
For a taste of the Great British seaside, Bournemouth will not disappoint. The vibrant, cosmopolitan resort is renowned for its seven miles of glorious golden sands, sparkling surf and traditional beach huts. Award-winning gardens and Victorian buildings add to the mix. There is nowhere in the world like the internationally acclaimed Monkey World – the largest rescue centre dedicated to 250 rescued and endangered monkeys and apes. Here you can immerse yourself in the precious species which are followed on the TV series ‘Monkey Life’, set in 65 acres of woodland.
Day 1 Departure: 0800 – 0900 hrs. Travel southwards making a comfort stop en-route. Free time in Bournemouth. Hotel check-in. Dinner is included.
Day 2 Visit Monkey World. Get close to the largest group of intelligent chimpanzees outside of Africa, plus Europe’s official orang-utan crèche and 11 different species of monkeys.

The primate staff enrich their lives and provide a memorable experience to learn about these creatures in a spacious, natural environment. We give approximately 4 hours free time.
