I've taken a lot of photographs of baboons and spent many, many more hours just watching them.
They are just so similar to humans, but without our inhibitions and social codes. Of course they have their own strict social codes and are probably a lot less inhibited about enforcing them!
This is a little photo essay of baboons doing their own thing, all taken in my first 12 months of guiding in Kruger.
