Monkey Cave These little guys are funny,
you're gonna love the Monkey Cave...

Why is the Monkey Cave so special?

Unlike traditional Zoos, these monkeys can roam free and they're so cute and friendly especially when you feed them...

If you can plan it - stop by a fresh fruit stall on the way to the Monkey Caves and pick up some ripe bananas or something, they'll be your best friends...

Monkey Cave FAQs

Will I have time?

Because of the heat of the mid-day sun the monkeys are most active between 6am - 9am in the morning and during the afternoon around 3pm - 6pm just before sunset... A short 30 minute car ride from most hotels in the Kupang city will get you there... Normally an hour there is enough...

Located on the main road heading from Kupang City to Tenau Harbor following the lower seaside route... Most taxi drivers know exactly where it is and is locally known as Gua Monyet Tenau...

Anything to remember?

Treat the monkeys with respect, don't have on loose items like hats, sun glasses or handbags because they will steal anything... Best to never smile or show your teeth as this is a sign of aggression... When feeding the monkeys be careful of their nails as they could scratch your hand...

How do I get there?

Because no local transport passes along this main road, your best chance to get there is by either local taxi (ask your hotel reception), Grab Car (App required), or Gojek (Motorbike App)...

How much will it cost?

The rental taxi will be the most expensive of the transport options around IDR150k - 200k for the round trip including waiting while you visit the Monkey Caves... A Grab Car or Bike would be the cheapest option... There is a small parking IDR10k - 20k/car and entrance fee IDR5k - 10k/person...

What can I do there?

The Monkey Cave has a small concrete walking path up and passed some cave entrances with some seating along the way if you wanna stop and rest or take selfie photos with the monkeys...

Best season and best time of day

The Monkey Caves can be visited all year as the monkeys do not migrate or move anywhere over the twelve month period...

The parking gates open early in the morning until after dark but sometimes the park is closed for a special public holiday or if the guard has pressing family business...

But don't worry as you can park across the road and the monkeys will come to you...
