Hamadryas Baboons

Come face to face with our Hamadryas Baboons at the Valley of the Kings. Revered by ancient Egyptians, our troop feels right at home perched in the shadow of a pyramid sculpture. These animals have strong social bonds and a very complex communication system. Most at home on rocky cliffs, our boys spend their time perched on their climbing structure. Observe their complex social behaviors, including grooming and looking out for predators.
