The great thing about South Africa is that you can drive just outside of a town or village in many areas and see wild Monkeys. Please do not feed them inside the grounds of nice hotels or inside towns. This just attracts them and they then leave their natural areas. They also eat foods that are really not good for them and they can cause the locals a lot of issues - after you leave. Some locals will then happily kill the sweet Monkeys you have attracted into their living areas.

So please keep wildlife alive - in the wild. Do not feed the Monkeys.
