RIEBEEK-KASTEEL MONKEY SANCTUARY
Wayne (aka Wendy) Macleod who founded a sanctuary for small primates in Gauteng more than a decade ago, named the "world primate sanctuary", visited Elizabeth Richardson, a remarkable lady who founded a similar sanctuary for small primates in Riebeek-Kasteel 30 years ago.
Elizabeth, who will be 90 this year, was born in Hampstead, London and grew up in Woodbridge, Suffolk before moving to Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe). Elizabeth and Wayne, who share the same passion for monkeys, have become very good friends. They have both visited Brazil and the Amazon and are equally passionate about caring for small primates
