No one real knows why they climb and roost in trees, it’s been suggested that this unusual behavior probably started during a fly epidemic when the cats climbed high to escape the swarms of biting flies on the ground, so present ongoing behavior is now part of their collective. At one moment you’re travelling through a fair -tale forest (called ground water forest).
where the old tuskers still roam, blue monkeys swing among huge fig trees, tamarind trees, giant baobabs, and mahoganies using their long tail as an extra limb. There’s an excellent chance of spotting a troop of more than 300 olive baboons sitting in the road, grooming each other, chatting and dozing, while dozens of naughty babies play around them and old granddaddies look on with knowing eyes.
