The monkeys at the Hlawga Safari Park used to search for food naturally, but that habit is disappearing eventually, as they are depending on the food that are fed to them by the visitors.

Therefore, the request is strongly made to the visitors to help the monkeys, by not feeding much and not to let them disappear their natural way of searching food.
