Two troops of baboons have made their way across the mountain to forage near Tokai and Silevermine, following the devastating fire which broke out in the South Peninsula in March 2015.
Table Mountain National Park (TMNP) has asked residents to always be vigilant in the Tokai forest and avoid contact with the baboons, who should not be disturbed in their natural habitat.
You have to be aware of your surroundings at all times.— Jaclyn Smith, Jaclyn Smith
TMNP Senior section ranger Jaclyn Smith says that, combined, the two troops equal less than 100 baboons.
This comes after a concerned listener called in, warning Capetonians to keep safe.
According to Smith, the baboons are moving further down the mountain to rest and congregate in warmer regions over the winter.
She has pleaded with residents not to feed any baboons, as it is illegal and encourages them to raid for food.
