Eating and drinking

You can enjoy a drink, fresh rolls, a hearty lunch or just a smooth cup of our own Lazy Monkey coffee on one of our cosy terraces. Would you rather sit inside? Restaurant BigFood offers this option.

Your visit to the restaurants in the park will also be a little different. Two hospitality facilities have been opened with toilet facilities: Apegaap (the new hospitality building in the renovated area) and Wildebras (previously known as Bigfood). The furniture has been arranged to allow 1.5 metres between groups and must not be moved. Orders can only be placed and paid for by smartphone, instead of at the counter. You can pick up your order at the outdoor counter, where 1.5-metre distance markers have been put in place.

Apegaap
Start your day at Apenheul with a freshly brewed cup of Lazy Monkey coffee! Treat yourself to some of our tasty snacks, such as pastries or an empanada (traditional sausage roll).

Wildebras
This large restaurant is centrally located in Apenheul. It is partially covered and features a large, well-organised terrace. Wildebras offers a wide range of food and drinks. For children, we serve children's menus with a surprise. Done eating? Kids can monkey around in the Na-aaphuis playground next to the terrace.

The coffee that we serve at our park is delicious, fair and it’s ecologically grown in the cloud forests of Peru. We also love helping people and nature!

Playing

Throughout the park you will find fun, exciting play areas which will test your skills against those of the primates. Have a go at being as agile as a spider monkey. Is your balance as good as that of a tamarin? And can you climb as well as a Barbary macaque?

  • Playhouse
    Live like a monkey at the playhouse! Climb and clamber like the primates, find your way around the exciting jungle maze or do the big primate test. In the playhouse, you see just how much like a primate you really are!
  • Large Playgrounds
    You can find Apenheul’s largest playground at Jambo's Place. At this playground, you can climb and clamber up to the highest point, and then whizz back down using the big slide. There is also a large playground near the orangutans, which is ideally suited to the daredevils among you.

The playground is only open to children up to 12 years old. One supervisor is allowed to watch from the side. Supervisors must keep 1.5 metres away from each other.

Fancy taking a monkey home with you? Sure! Why not? You’ll find an extensive range of stuffed animals and even more monkey and Apenheul souvenirs at our souvenir shop.
