Atlas Mountain Monkeys

Visiting the Monkeys

We had a late flight out of Fes on our final day in Morocco, which left time for one more tour.  We decided to get out of the city and see some of the countryside.  We drove out to the Atlas mountains and saw a couple villages along the way.  But the real highlight was the forest where we were able to stop and feed monkeys!

Quick photo stop before the forest.

We bought some bread in the morning and just tore off little pieces to hand to them.  They were very gentle (for the most part) and would take it right out of your hands!

We took a bunch of videos too, but of course I can’t get them to load on here!  If someone knows how to help me, let me know!  Anyway it was one of the most fun things we’ve done over here.  I’ve never been able to get so close to a wild animal before.  However, I must say that the movie Outbreak went through my mind a few times.  Nonetheless, it was such a fun day and a truly extraordinary experience!
