The Babor Range (Arabic: جبل البابور‎; French: Monts des Babors) is a mountain range of the Tell Atlas in Algeria. The highest point of the range is 2,004 m high Mount Babor.[2]

The Babor Range, together with the neighboring Bibans, is part of the mountainous natural region of Petite Kabylie.[3]


There is a protected area in the range, the Djebel Babor Nature Reserve, known for birdwatching.[4] It is also one of the few remaining habitats for the endangered Barbary macaque, Macaca sylvanus.[5]
