When passing through a Roadhouse in southern Namibia, we met the family owners - and this cute baby Chacma baboon they were hand raising for eventual release back into his troop that live nearby. They were raising him because his mother was sadly killed by a passing car on the roads nearby.
But he would've been released by now, and no, he's not in an area to pose any risk to people. The troop live in remote Fish River Canyon, and these baboons are wild, free, and don't conflict with people.
In October 2017, I was on the home straight after 5 months of self-drive Safari across Africa. Crossing through Botswana to see a final few Parks before returning home to Australia, I had my most intense photographic day yet - in the unassuming but sometimes chaotic Nxai Pans National Park.
From hearing the cheetah kill nearby to following the dove’s plummeting arc, the kamikaze goshawk and the 50 elephant bulls that came by that waterhole, it was an experience of a lifetime.
