Gelada Baboon

 This striking and unmistakable baboon is the most common of Ethiopia's endemic large mammal species, with the population estimated by some as high as 400.000.

The male is a spectacularly handsome beast, possessed of an imposing golden mane and heart-shaped red chest patch. This singular primate is unique in that it feeds predominantly on grasses. It is a very sociable monkey too! Conglomerations of 500 or more can be easily seen while walking along the cliffs of the Semien Mountain National Park

They are very tame and will allow humans to approach very close to the troop before moving nearer to the cliff edge. You will sure enjoy the stay close to them!
