Baboons and Monkeys of the Kruger - Public sightings gallery

Unread post by Jan van Wyk » Sun Apr 12, 2015 11:28 am

What will Kruger be without the Baboons? :hmz: :hmz:
I decided to open a thread for the majestic Baboons of Kruger. Millions of visitors had spend some time at a Baboon troop and enjoyed all the interaction and photographed them at leased one time.

Lets share and enjoy all the sightings and bring them into our homes until our next visit.... :hmz:

Will start off with a few the cute baby Baboons.....
