The scenery is breathtaking and if it is a clear day you can see miles and miles away. We went by tazi because on this particular day the cable car was... More

Take the taxi ride to the top, well worth the money. Be careful of the monkeys they will still anything you have. Views are spectacular and the ride up is an adventure in itself. Go into the caves, they are very nice and have lots of history.

The reserve is well organised and can be a bit arduous on some of the climbs, but well worth walking or biking around the trails rather than motoring.The suspension bridge crossing is recommended.The trails could be better marked to assist the none-map reader, and some of the experience was spoiled by the litter strewn alongside some of the routes and...

This is a great place to explore for half a day. A variety of flora and fauna to look out for, with some rare endemic species.

Hidden amongst the Upper Rock Nature Reserve is a brand new (6 months old) suspension bridge with great views and that spine tingling feeling when you feel the bridge wobble (it is designed to move freely). Only draw back is finding the bridge! There are absolutely no signs as yet to suggest it exists or where to find it. The... More

This amazing rock formation in an extremely rich historic location is worth a visit and even a trip form the Costa del sol. For its magnificent views, for some unique vegetation, for the fun watching monkeys play and for walking around and explore the tunnels, caves, castle, suspension bridge and so much more. So why not giving it 5 stars.... More
