This nature reserve is very refreshing especially where it is and that the monkeys are adorable yet incredibly mischievous.

We paid to go up by car which was the cheaper option and meant everything was included in the one price. The drive is step and narrow and you do need to be a confident driver to do this! The Barbary monkeys are everywhere so you need to take it slow and easy. There are car parking spaces but they... More

Finally went to the zoo with my baby girl and friend who is mid 60's. Firstly you can't take a pram, wheel chair, be on crutches, infirm etc. I ended up carrying my baby but I wouldn't actually recommend doing that as there are steps every where. Tiny uneven wet and in the dark steps, slimy steps. Being australian I... More

A must see for your visit to gibraltar. Be warned it's very expensive and if you want to walk rather than taxi they charge too

After astonishing views form the top of the rock it is nice to walk back down, being able to look at all the wildlife and flowers, especially in spring!

We found the Nature Reserve an excellent place to walk around and view the monkeys etc. Walking around here takes time and effort but the views are breathtaking and the scenery stunning.

This reserve is the home of a number of monkey families. These entertaining creatures seem to have no fear of people so getting close is no problem to take pictures. We were told to be aware of the Mother's with babies --- they are very protective of their monkey babies. The area is a nice place with green space &... More

Just a wonderful viewing point. Nice cafe at the top. The cable car is a must do attraction. And you get to see the apes running around. It needed a good sweep up when we were there in March 2014 - surprisingly there was a lot of litter around which detracted from the attraction.
