Apenheul Primate Park is unique. There is no other zoo in the world where you will find so many primates roaming freely among the visitors: more than 200 of them! The monkeys are very friendly, and are harmless to you and your children, and they will come up close.

The Bornean orangutan (Pongo pygmaeus) is a species of orangutan native to the island of Borneo. Together with the Sumatran orangutan and Tapanuli orangutan, it belongs to the only genus of great apes native to Asia. Like the other great apes, orangutans are highly intelligent, displaying tool use and distinct cultural patterns in the wild. Orangutans share approximately 97% of their DNA with humans. Deforestation, palm oil plantations and hunting are posing a serious threat to their existence.
