Annual Baboon Holiday Shenanigans In Kleinmond

Baboons in Kleinmond town again for their annual ‘holiday’ - how best to deal with them.

The baboon troop only visits Kleinmond for a few weeks usually around this time of year.

The Overstrand Eco-monitors (aka baboon criers) are also patrolling the area to warn residents in Kleinmond that the baboon troop has entered the town so they can close doors and windows timeously.
