Baboon Photos - Bonus Page

These baboon photos are all of the chacma baboon (Papio ursinus) which is the species commonly found in the game reserves and national parks of southern Africa.

The chacma baboon is the largest primate in southern Africa. The colour of this baboon varies greatly according to sex, age and origin, but is generally a grayish-brown colour.

The females are lightly built and slender but the males have powerfully built shoulders and head. The muzzle is large and dog-like and particularly pronounced on males.

The photos were taken in South Africa's Kruger National Park and in Lower Zambezi National Park and Mosi-Oa-Tunya Park in Zambia.
