Nice to see many families of baboons around. They are obviously used to humans in vehicles passing by watching them as they go about doing their usual activities without a care.

it was fun to watch these cute animals in wilderness. the way the baby clung to their moms, the way they groomed each other, and the amount of fun they had left one laughing

Everywhere you look they are there for one to see. There is even a lookout point if you so wish to visit but honestly it is totally unnecessary as these fine creatures can be seen everywhere.

The baboons were active - climbing, eating, grooming - you name it! SO active and SO fun to watch them interact with one another. GREAT photo opportunities!

Baboons are very easily found at Lake Nakuru and there is specific place called Baboon Point where you will find group of Baboons where you may feed them also by do not leave your vehicle open, they will enter there and spoil every thing inside....More

There were baboons everywhere at the main entrance. All sizes. I thought the little ones on their mommies' backs were so cute. The big ones looked scary though.

there are quite a lot of them, doing all sought of stuff busy with their own daily routines.. the big males, the babies, the bachelors and the horny ones.. its definitely worth the time spent..

You have to love just sitting and watching families of Baboons taking care of daily routines or just being lazy. So awesome to observe wildlife in their habitats. Also saw some Vervits sunning themselves on the rocks on the west side of the lake.

There are a large number of animals, but in a few areas a large number of Baboons. Families with babies, cute. Don't leave your vehicle open as they'll tear it up.
