Excellent day out Sep 16, 2008
Cefn-yr-Erw Primate Sanctuary is in the Swansea Valley in the lovely Brecon Beacons National Park area of South Wales. Formerly a traditional Welsh hill farm, the sanctuary now rescues and provides a home for many types of unwanted animals, especially primates, such as chimpanzees, baboons, spider monkeys, capuchins and marmosets .

Cefn-yr-Erw welcomes visitors to see the animals and the work we do. A number of them have come from zoos and laboratories and some have suffered mistreatment and deprivation in their earlier lives. As they are not equipped for survival in the wild we can only endeavour to make the rest of their lives as enjoyable and stress free as possible.

Cefn Yr Erw is a family run Primate Sanctuary , but also home for many other rare breeds , All the animals have been rescued , some from the most appaling conditions inflicted by man !
Here they have the chance to live out their lives in peace and with the care they deserve.
A great place to visit 10/10
