This Baboon was trying to hide himself on a low-water bridge as we drove past.

Jan van Riebeeck mentioned baboons in his diary as early as 24 July 1952.

Found this baboon feeding on an Impala lamb on the northern bank of the Luvuvhu river near the Pafuri picnic site. A ram and ewe(the mother I suppose) were protesting very loudly but the baboon couldn't be bothered in the least.

Came across this pic from one of our much earlier trips to Kruger!
Not sure where they had got the infant's dummy from but they were having a great game with it, catch me if you can, and it was being snatched from one to the other and promptly put into the mouth.
It was actually quite hilarious!

and another pic of a very tired Baboon who had found a very comfortable spot in the tree!

I took this video at the Punda Maria hide. Baboons' antics can sometimes be some of the most interesting sights in the park Just watch this affection. Enjoy.

Lovely video! :clap: I understand the story is that the higher up you are in the hierarchy of the baboon social structure - the more you get groomed. This has to be a queen! :tongue:
