This pair of slightly sinister baboons were lurking by our car on the roadside near Kibale, waiting for us to give them scraps of food or bananas. There were “do not feed the wild animals” signs everywhere, probably to stop the baboons developing a taste for “human” grub (although judging by their expectant & slightly worrying behaviour, they already have). Loved their bright red butts! 🐒🍎 (at Kibale National Park)

Mel left London to chase summer around the world, one country at a time. She loves the ocean, writing postcards, and solo exploration. Travel with her on Instagram.
