This is very interesting.
So the question now is, are there any Samango Monkeys in the Kruger? :hmz: :hmz:

We visited Pafuri Camp last year Sept.
While there, we asked the guide about the Samango Monkeys.
Apparently they were previously seen in the Pafuri area.
Quite a few years ago, however, a flood destroyed a ?Wild Fig (I think that was the tree - not sure anymore) forest that was found adjacent to the Luvuvhu.
And this is where these monkeys came to eat.
Since that's been destroyed - they moved out of the area, and haven't been seen for years.
That's the way I remember the story.
But the bottom line is that they are no longer seen, although they were seen there many years ago.
