Typically when we host teams from the USA or wherever, we always end their stay with a nice safari experience. In early Jan we had a small team from Texas and it was no different. Their last two days would be spent enjoying a splendid overnight safari.
Rich asked one of our South African friends, Ross to join them as there was extra room in the guy’s chalet. Ross did join and it proved to be quite an experience.
After enjoying an early morning game drive the guys returned to their chalet to find quite a sight. The room was in shambles…food half eaten and strewn all over, curtains ripped down, and garbage everywhere. In addition piles of poop accompanied the disaster. Someone left a window open and baboons took this as an invitation to invade the place.
Ross quickly ran upstairs to his room to assess the damage and Rich said he knew it was bad when they heard, “No, No…ah come on….you have got to be kidding me!”
Ross came down the stairs with this precious sight……………
….a thoughtful gift from one of the baboons presented nicely on his pressed and folded shirt.
So when you see the ‘baboon warning’ signs you’d be wise to adhere. I am sure ‘baboon’ pestilence is a growing concern for you in the good ole USA.
