The ubiquitous baboon. Lot's of them around here, especially in the Cape Point National Park. We see them on the roads, in the parking lots. Any place they might pick up some scraps. But don't get too close to them. They're wild and they scratch and bite.

Boulder Bay, a rock and sand beach just outside of Simon's Town, not more than an hour south of Cape Town, has had a colony for the last 10 years. They just showed up one day and now the town has to put up with the flood of human gawkers, like us.
