Photo of the week – Is that a baboon cooling down there mate?

Posted on Fri November 13, 2015.

We had to smile about these uncanny photos of a baby baboon swimming in the sunken hide’s waterhole.  As can be expected from any “toddler” these days, the hot weather was just too much and there was only one way to cool down!  Luckily its mom was close by, and the shallow waterhole didn’t pose any major crocodile threats 🙂

The images were taken by Manus van Dyk on a recent photographic course at Indlovu River Lodge.
