Baboon walks on all fours, and can reach a top running speed of 56km per hour, with a gallop similar to that of a horse.  They are omnivorous, spending much of the day on the ground supplementing a very varied diet.  Chacma baboons need to live close to a fresh water source, and generally also near to trees, their preferred sleeping places – although they will also sleep on rocky outcrops.
