Due to the effects of the pandemic on our market and looking to the future, it has become blatantly clear that the monkeys who inhabit the sanctuary should also be the rightful owners of the forested sanctuary land

To do this, for the animals to own the sanctuary land, we have used our non-profit organization South African Animal Sanctuary Alliance (SAASA) to actually hold the property for the animals, and change the Land Title Deed conditions to make sure the land can never be taken away from the monkeys, or used for any other purpose other than a monkey sanctuary.

In order to fund the purchase of the land into SAASA we are humbly asking animal lovers throughout the world to buy one square meter of land for the monkeys at $5 a square meter in our “Buy a Square Meter campaign”.

On transfer, this will be the first ever real estate deal where the animals actually own the land they live on.

Firstly, I think we all have an element of compassion for nature, and the chances are, that if you are reading this you do too.

Animals in general have been dealt a raw deal, in most the instances of endangerment and or extinction is has to do with their habitat being threatened and taken away, plus all the misery that follows that.

Well, this is no different, as in essence the original Monkeyland animals are already a victim of this, but were rescued from hideous laboratories, vivisection, zoo’s and pet confinement, and brought to Monkeyland where they have lived and bred as free roaming monkeys resulting in 10 generations of new born that have never been exposed to the misery that their parents previously endured. Currently, all this is at threat due to the possible change of heart of the evolving shareholders of the property owning company. Take away their forest and the primates are no better off than their ancestors were.

This is a real, “Real Estate” deal, the actual existing property that Monkeyland is on is being purchased by SAASA an NPO which has as its aim, to protect the lives and rights of the animals of which it is a custodian, and to assist any other animals wherever they may be as well.

This campaign is with the mutual agreement of the existing landowner and the NPO, the contractual agreement has been drawn up by Fluxman Attorneys South Africa’s leading Attorney firm and the entire process is under constant scrutiny of Mazars a top 5 untainted South African Auditing company.

This campaign offers you an opportunity to donate as little as $5 and be part of a real property purchase that will secure the future of the monkeys at Monkeyland.

All amounts donated will be issued with a Tax Exemption Certificate.

One step at a time, right now we are concentrating on the Monkeyland primates, and their future on Portion 12 of Kirbywood 302.

As many of you will know that hundreds of primates from Monkeyland were also relocated to a new home at Monkeyland KZN in 2018 and 2019. These primates are also under the custodianship of SAASA (The South African Animal Sanctuary Alliance) on a forested property of just over 18 hectares.

Like the monkeys at Monkeyland, the property in KZN is also property they do not own through their custodian SAASA. In brief and “In principal” terms we have spoken to this landowner as well, with the intention to start dialog of a possible similar deal where that forest can also be secured forever for the use of the KZN monkeys and primates.

That landowner has also indicated his understanding and willingness to talk to SAASA about such an agreement, however we will only look at that after we are happy with the progress in the current campaign on Kirbywood farm.

Yes this is a totally above board, with legally binding agreements signed by both parties.

This campaign is with the mutual agreement of the existing landowner and the NPO, the contractual agreement has been drawn up by Fluxmans Attorneys South Africa’s leading Attorney firm and the entire process is under constant scrutiny of Mazars a top 5 untainted South African Auditing company.

You are going to secure the future of a very special group of over 600 primates (monkeys) emanating from every corner of the world.

You are going to be part of a very innovative real estate deal where animals are the benefactors.

You will receive a Tax Exemption certificate for the amount of your donation.

Every square meter of the property your donation buys for the primates is numbered and recorded on this website.

You will also receive a unique donation number, related to the purchase of square meters, and this information will also be held at the sanctuary, as we know you will come and visit the monkeys.

For every $50 donated to this project, the sanctuary will honor the donor with a free visit to the sanctuary after the finalization of the actual purchase and transfer of the property into the NPO (SAASA) by the South African Deeds Office.

Please note: donation to purchase a Square meter of forest will ultimately allow the monkeys to own the land through SAASA. The donor is making a donation and will not personally own the square meter. His/her  donation will allow the monkeys to own the property.
