It's Better to Travel than Arrive?

Baboons - The Differences

Stay away from the Cape baboons!

When we were in Macatoo, we saw Botswanan baboons every day.  They were around the camp and made themselves at home, but would bolt as soon as you yelled at them or waved your arms about - they weren't bold.

When we got to Franschhoek we saw different baboons; tough baboons, baboons that weren't scared of people.  They would stalk down the middle of the roads, daring people into crazy overtaking manoeuvres.  These baboons weren't scared of people and looked mean - much bigger, darker and hairier than the Botswanan ones.

Here's some photos I found online of Cape baboons, being generally menacing.  If you're driving in the area, keep your windows up, your doors locked (they can open doors) and keep moving.  Don't stop to look at the cute little monkeys, they're NOT cute.

"Barry, smile for the camera!"

"Marge!  Marge, this one's left their door unlocked, bring the kids!"

"Sharon, there's no way you're a double D, try the red bra!"
