I had the small monkey climbs onto the zebra. This was rejected. I find climbing up onto the zebra a little awkward in this context.

Absolutely, I just reported the same.

The "up" goes with the "fel-" part of the sentence. It may not sound like regular English, butit captures the spirit of the Hungarian better.
