The Islands Gold award-winning sanctuary is home to a diverse collection of rescued primates and birds of prey. Whooping gibbons, cheeky macaques, cute capuchins and curious owls are just some of the fantastic animals that await your visit. Enter the park to find a tranquil environment where primates relax and play in spacious enclosures and various species of owl enthral visitors with their elegant appearance and alluring eyes.

Winner of the Gold Award in the Best Small Attraction of the Beautiful South Awards for Excellence 2011, the Haven continues to expand and develop. The LEAF foundation, refurbished tea room, new primates and the heart-warming conclusion to the Martin & Lulu story! Daily keeper talks and informative guided tours provide guests with the opportunity to get up close and personal with the animals. For those wishing to experience a little more interaction why not pre-arrange a marmoset encounter! These tiny South American monkeys are delightfully mischievous and thoroughly enjoy being fed by visitors. Beautiful grounds, tea room, gift shop, two adventure play areas and excellent disabled access throughout makes a visit to the Haven a truly captivating and heart-warming animal experience for all.
