It is very pretty walking in this reserve, looking at the various flowers, shrubs and plants. We walked the whole length of it and had a very enjoyably time. There are a few slopes so wear decent foot ware.

Great to walk among all the families of monkeys (well Apes really but lets not split hairs). The babies are a treat to watch and more welcoming than the older grumpy ones.

The Upper Rock Nature Reserve covers lots of area and numerous attractions. We didn’t want to walk up all the way, so we took a minivan with other enthusiastic explorers to go up to different stops like “The Pillars of Hercules”. It faces the Strait of Gibraltar and we could see Africa and Spain. Beautiful St. Michael’s Cave, Charles V... More

We were worried about the apes, having read quite a lot about them but as long as they don't suspect you of having food, or get between mothers and babies you're fine. They are extremely interesting and clearly loved by many. We saw lots of migratory birds as the wind was in the right direction and loads of butterflies on... More

Superb views, good walking for seroius ramblers as well as those looking for a few miles 'stroll' interspersed with various attractions and places for a picnic.

The lack of housing and traffic is wonderful, but don't expect to see a lot of the nature reserve from the road.

Absolutely brilliant time on the Rock. One bit of advice is if you wear a hat to take it off. We had one monkey who decided to nab a wooly hat and we had a great laugh watching him put it on for 20 minutes (she did get it back in the end). They weren't as violent as I've seen... More

If you visit GIB you need to go into the Upper Rock, walk up via the steps, or the cable car. Or pick up a Taxi Tour.
