I am way down country and regulaly see swimming baboons in fact there is a pan in a nearby reserve called baboons swemgat (swimming hole).

Growing up in the north of botswana I also recall swimming baboons - in fact in one hotel we sometimes had to case them out the pool so that guests could use it.

Thanks a lot for your input Jeanus,

I have also heard stories of baboons using swimming pools. If you or anyone else can PM me photos of any cases where baboons are swimming in deeper water, I will appreciate it.

Information of where it was and also what the weather was like will help what is now becoming a field of study.

I get the local baboons coming to my pool daily, but not to swim, just for a drink.
