One of the Many Families at Cape Pont

Chacma Baboons are the mammal most intimately associated with the Cape of Good Hope. Baboons inside the Cape of Good Hope section of the park are a major tourist attraction.

Feeding Baboons is prohibited. Sadly, this is not always the situation. In 2019, only 1 birth was successful.

This year over 35 babies have been spotted.

This is due to the fact that baboons are eating their natural foods and not human junk food. At least one good thing came from this pandemic.

Thank you for viewing my photos. Your comments and advice are always appreciated.

Thank you for all the fav’s, I really enjoy them.

They remind me of the monkeys I saw when I visited Gibraltar some years ago. These make a lovely family and mum and dad look very protective. Lovely capture.

A lovely shot. Interesting that the absence of humans and their junk food is allowing them to breed more successfully - fav!

I remember early on in 2020 when most cities were shut down completely seeing a video taken in India (I think) where monkeys were over-running the city looking for food because there were no people outside feeding them. They'd grown so dependent on being fed they didn't know how to hunt in the woods. Crazy! Glad to see one positive effect less tourists has made on your baboon population. Good shot!
