Baboons are intelligent creatures and they love the safari lunch packs provided by many hotels in the bush. One time I was waiting in the car as my husband went to pay at the park entrance.
I’m very aware of baboons and the fact that they are notorious for stealing food, but I was sitting right next to a bag with 3 boxes stuffed with food. The door was closed and the window was just opened a tiny bit.
A big baboon came past and pushed his nose against the car window to have a good look inside. He spotted the boxes, opened the door, ignored my objections and walked off with the plastic bag. He was so calm and unafraid of me it was almost funny.
