The apes den was pretty empty when we walked by but that does not mean that we did not see our quota of apes. They were all over the rock

The apes are so inquisitive and there's so many of them! They are honestly everywhere, do not worry about not seeing them. They're not shy of people either which means you can get some incredible pictures and up close experiences with them. They do bite...More

Absolutely fantastic. The apes are amazing. You do have to watch out for the minibus drivers as they monopolize the apes for their customers. There is a fine of £4000 if you feed the apes however the drivers use nuts to get them to sit...More

Do listen to warnings and take precautions. Some to trusts were getting stupidly close to the animals for selfies etc. While they are used to humans they are still wild and showed hostility and discomfort wren people got too close. We got the cable car...More

Was fun to watch the monkeys... especially when they were stealing things from the tourists that had been warned not to take food and drink out in front of them! Haha Most seemed really sweet though, getting on with their own business and mucking around...More

Lots of emphasis on wild monkeys, more domesticated monkeys putting up with tourists and occasionally driven wild. Very busy these days with constant taxis shuttling people up to roadside. One local was coaxing monkeys onto people's shoulders for pictures and fee. Some (3) apes killed...More

I was a bit disappointed to find the Ape's Den seemed to just be an area along the road where the tour groups met. I enjoyed seeing all the apes along the way rather than in this crowded area.

We decided against the cable car and went up with a taxi guide. Well worth it. We saw baby monkeys on their mothers back. So close we could touch them but safe in the knowledge they couldn’t get us! Be careful when walking around. A...More

We loved watching the apes wander about. Worth being aware you shouldn't have any bags or food on you as they'll try and snatch them and they're stronger than they look!

I would be careful with that. When we went there were some young baby ones and some of the adult apes were pretty aggressive. Remember even though they see people daily they are wild animals. Some will come up to you... More

You can get to the apes den easily by going up in the cable car or you can take a taxi trip up which takes in all the important sights, apes den included.
