old_belizeCreated by a number of farmers of the Belize District living in villages with names like Bermudian Landing, and Lemonal, with the assistance of the WWF, an excellent concept was created – the Community Baboon Sanctuary.

Actually Howler Monkeys, these primates live in a perfect habitat in the wild, the riverine forests of the fertile Belize River area. Prepared jungle paths take the visitor on a tour of the world of the Howler, who often come down near the ground and may be inches away from your cameras. Shy and quiet they certainly are not – their howling can be heard for miles! A great wildlife tour!

 

 

baboon3After your wildlife experience, it’s back onboard your tour van en-route to Old Belize. Enjoy a delicious Belizean meal before starting your tour. After lunch, take a step back in time and walk through realistic recreations of what was Belize. View a Chicle (chewing gum) Collection Camp, a Rainforest and Logging Operation as was conducted in the early settlement of Belize, a Mayan Village and a Garifuna home; two of the many cultures that makeup the Belizean Society. After the tour of Old Belize, it’s just a short bus ride back to the dock.
