Chacma Baboons are commonly seen by visitors to Cape Point and their human like behavior is extremely popular with visitors. We relate closely to their mannerisms and quickly become enthralled with their personalities. Unfortunately there is an ongoing conflict between people and the Chacma Baboon.  As human expansion increases, foraging grounds decrease and the natural environment decreases, making it harder for these intelligent creatures to survive.
