Monkey Jungle ( as we were told it translates to in English ) allows you to not only see Barbary macaques up close but also to actually feed them ! If you try this in Gibraltar they will most likely run off with your bag...More

After visiting Rocamadour, we spent around 90 minutes at this forest. The monkeys are tame and you can hand popcorn to them, which they take calmly from your hand. It was lovely to walk amongst them. Plenty of park staff ensure everyone is following the...More

The place is fantastic- so clean and well catered for. Excellent customer service to visitors and the care given to the monkeys. In a natural environment. A couple of hours of great enjoyment and informative visit.

The kids loved this place and giving the monkeys popcorn by hand. Very safe and I saw no incidents. All the staff are close at hand to make sure everyone is following the rules for the monkeys and their safety.

We loved this experience. The monkeys were friendly and they re-release some back into the wild so you feel like you are doing your bit for the wildlife. The monkeys didnt appear to be dependant on the popcorn and came and went as they wished....More
