It was worth stopping at the den but unfortunately for us there weren't a lot of monkeys around. We only saw about five or six, but it was lovely even so.

The trip up to see the apes was horrendous. Barely the width of the minibus, turning corners and the trip down should be classed as an Olympic sport. Scary...... Once we reached the top, we were anxious and nervous - holding tightly to our bags and our glasses, sun glasses and everything removable was safely put away - after all,... More

The monkeys were interesting we saw a father looking after his baby, he looked uncomfortable as if he was hoping the mother would come back soon!

Just observe craziness at its best! The monkeys are so fun to watch and their antics provide a great comical relief. However if I was approached by one I might have another opinion. Just stand back and watch how they interact with each other and with humans. Great entertainment.

We visited the top of the rock, St Micheal`s cave and the apes den. The apes are almost everywhere in this area. They are used to the tourists being around. As a piece of general advice, it is always best to keep a bit of distance from them and not to be seen with food or bags. While there we... More

These apes are interesting but can be vicious so heed warnings! One of or group wanted a photo and she kept bothering the ape to get closer eventually he did bite. Another jumped on top of a fellow travellers head. They seem quite mischievious but our guide was quick to shoo them away if they looked like they might be... More

Great visit, these apes are as domesticated as your pet beagle. They're about 242 monkeys are all accounted and well kept on this location. They interact with all the human visitors and love to play around.

If you go to The Rock you really must go up to see the apes just don't take any bags or fruit because the apes will be off with them

They are curious, they watch you, follow every step. But be aware for what you bring in your hands, especially if it is food or something shiny! They're faster than you imagine :)
