Monkeybiz

Safari Fusion blog | Monkeybiz | Beautiful handcrafted quirky African beqd animals & dolls made with love in South Africa
One of South Africa’s most inspiring projects is the non-profit organisation, Monkeybiz. I have been a huge fan of this project for more than 9 years, adding to my collection with each visit to Cape Town.

Monkeybiz supports more than 450 women in Cape Town’s township communities; many of whom are affected with HIV.

With training, beads and materials provided, the women craft one-of-a-kind Bead Animals and Dolls; all with the distinctive fun, colour and humour that Monkeybiz has become renowned for!
