I’m not sure what’s so exciting about these animals. They are everywhere. They are even in lake view estate in Nakuru town. Basically they just annoy people. I can’t remember how many times these annoying animals have taken my hats and food. Go to nakuru to see the cats and don’t waste time on these animals. They also have bad manners if you try to snap a photo.

This is a viewpoint within Lake Nakuru park that overlooks the lake from a height of I guess 300 meters. Superb views - great for taking panoramic photos.

On the floor of the Great Rift Valley lies Lake Nakuru National Park surrounded by wooded and bushy grassland. Plenty of fascinating baboons with their families.

Just watching these creatures in amazing. How they interact with each other, how they ignore other species, and how they look and learn so intensely. I could watch these guys all day.

Yup, God had a good chuckle I am sure when he created the Vervit monkey. They are so-o-o cute, more so than the baby baboons. However the regal posture of the mature male baboons is captivating. The little babies dangling form the mothers or riding bareback on them is very comical as well. Careful at the Baboon Viewpoint, as they will jump into your vehicle quicker than you can bat an eye.

because this area is frequently used for lunches and food stops, some of the baboons are a little too familiar with people and snatching food etc. exercise caution and dont leave vehicles open and/or unattended as things tend to go missing. Also be careful with little children as baboons can intimidate these a lot easier than adults and they will take an opportunity to snatch food out of child's hand.

I've always loved monkeys, though we were warned to be careful and not let them into the car as they like to help themselves to your belongings, and the baboons will just take your whole bag!

At Baboon cliff we enjoyed the aerial view of the park,But take a little more caution There is a huge fierce male Baboon That patrols his territory at the Baboon cliff,He can storm into the car,make sure the roof doors and windows are closed before you alight.
