The Monkeys in the UK

In all my experiences getting up close and personal to monkeys in India, Costa Rica, Japan, the Congo, Egypt, Sudan, Madagascar, and the Ivory Coast -- I have never fulfilled my true passion for them until I hit Gibraltar, UK.

If you are ever near Spain or Morrocco, hit up the Rock and take a hike up the mountain where you'll find yourself surrounded by hundreds of lively apes. It's a definate must-do for any monkey lover! They will jump comfortably on your head, sit on your shoulder and protect you from unwanted attention.

Find a space away from the noise and let them get to know you first by feeling out your vibrations. It may take awhile but it is well worth the experience. There really is not much else to see in Gibraltar, so a good 5 hours is more than enough.
