In the previous Tanzania safari post I gave you my top 15 safari pictures. Today’s picture post is completely dedicated to monkeys.
In Tanzania you’ll see Vervet Monkeys, Olive Baboons, Blue Monkeys, and more. They travel in very large packs and don’t show too much fear of humans. The baboons walk with an air of arrogance I’ve never seen before.
Our guide told us that the Vervet Monkeys are not afraid of Americans but will run away from the locals. When our guide later went to the bathroom a monkey came over to our picnic lunch to steel our papaya. My husband tried to chase him away and the monkey practically laughed at him. Another guide nearby took just one step forward and the monkey sprinted away and up a tree. I sat there laughing hysterically, such smart little guys You can see this monkey eating our papaya in one of the pictures below.
