The Community Baboon Sanctuary is where you will find an abundance of the black howler monkeys. This protected area is located in a small village, known as Bermudian Landing, approximately 25 miles west of Belize City, along the historic old Belize River. It is an incredible success story of people voluntarily coming together for the sole purpose of protecting and preserving one of earth’s endangered species.
Getting to the sanctuary is about a 45 minute drive from Belize City, or 30 minutes from the Belize International Airport. Upon arrival, you will be introduced to your guide who will walk you through the museum that provides detailed information about the program and more.
The well trained guide will then accompany you to the trails in the nearby rainforest of the community where you will be able to come up close and personal with these mammals. If you are fortunate, you will get to hear the loud howls, and also be allowed to feed these mammals.
They are the loudest mammals in the tropical rainforest. Bring along your insect repellant and feel free to take all the pictures you like. This tour will last a couple of hours so it is a good addition to a transfer, or other tour. A great tour for all nature lovers and also a wonderful family activity.
