To Apenheul during our Animal Camp

Walking through a forest full of stray monkeys, you don't want to miss that! A visit to Apenheul where the monkeys walk along the trees, bushes and visitors(!) is a really fun experience! With participating in the Animal Camp you also support the Apenheul Natuurfonds (ANF), a charity for monkeys and nature, and you will receive a original Apenheul cap in the monkey tracking package!

You'll be going on a World Nature Expedition at Burgers' Zoo and participate in a exiting quest in a canoe at Markant. You'll be standing eye-to-eye with a real ostrich at the ostrich farm and you'll be visiting an animal farm where ducks, chickens and even a boar are freely roaming about. Do you dare to pet all of the animals? You will take care of all of the animal that run around the grounds at Markant Outdoorcentrum. Ofcourse there is plenty of time left for even more adventures or to relax on the beach and around the campfire.
