Baboons are not unusual in the Western Cape; in certain areas in and around Cape Town people are complaining about those ‘trouble makers’.
Baboons are very much humans alike in their behaviour.
Just a few ‘shots’ during a drive along the old Hugenot Route between Cape Town and Worcester.
Most people have those invaluable things in and around the house. It can be a souvenir from a place visited; memories from childhood, a heirloom or whatever. I’ve made a photographic inventory in our house and I publish the images in this blog, one by one. They are all in B&W.
Today is Baboon sniff. It’s the name of a plant that grows in the hot and dry Karoo in Southern Africa. It seems that baboons open the seed pods for a sniff. Haven’t figured out why (too many stories and opinions).
We are privileged to live where we live in South Africa; an abundance of nature and an amazing landscape. Hidden in the mountains are numerous waterfalls, patches with pristine fynbos and various other plant genera. And than the animals. In the Overberg you find everything from a small bug to baboons and leopards. And they all like to chill every now and than; human beings alike.
