A huge alpha male baboon beat the security at Groot Constantia Wine Farm in Cape Town to enjoy a free meal.


He scared off two diners at the Jonkershuis Restaurant and took over their dishes of spaghetti bolognese and garlic bread.

The baboon looked almost nonchalant sitting at the outdoor table and took fifteen minutes to finish his meal.

Luckily the diners’ meals were replaced after the baboon headed back to the mountain which is a part of the Table Mountain National Park.

According to SA People, Groot Constantia has spent around R900,000 on a special fence to keep the baboons out, and have a team to monitor the perimeter.

But the security didn’t get in the way of this guy’s Saturday lunch.
