Garth Bradley was working from home in South Africa when he looked outside and saw some unexpected guests taking advantage of the swimming pool. A pair of wild baboons had made their way over from the surrounding hillsides and decided to have a blast! 😀
The uninvited guests jumped right in and splashed around as Garth watched in awe and amazement. It was very obvious the baboons were having a lot of fun.
“It was enjoyable to watch them having fun. Sort of like watching human kids playing around the pool,” Garth told The Dodo.
The two wild animals have actually been around the property before as they have checked out the natural garden, but this was the first time they’d ever hopped in the pool. Who could pass up a dip in the pool on a hot day?
Even though these “locals” were non-paying guests making use of the amenities at his scenic rental property called Kalliste, Garth actually embraced it rather than being bothered by it.
“We chose to live in this area for its natural beauty,” he said. “We have moved into their space, they haven’t moved into ours. It is about tolerance. It would be foolish of us not to expect visitors from the wild.”
