Garth Bradley was working from his home in South Africa one day when he looked out the window and spotted some unexpected guests swimming in the pool. It was a pair of wild baboons who’d made their way over from the surrounding hillsides in order to have a little fun! 😀
The uninvited visitors jumped in the water and splashed about as the man watched in awe. And it was very obvious they were having a blast doing so.
“It was enjoyable to watch them having fun. Sort of like watching human kids playing around the pool,” Garth told The Dodo.
These baboons have actually been around his property before to scope out his natural garden, but they’d never gotten into the pool until now. It’s just hard to pass up a nice dip in the pool on a hot day! 🙂
The man isn’t bothered by the fact that these locals were non-paying guests making use of the amenities at his scenic rental property but actually embraces it.
“We chose to live in this area for its natural beauty,” Garth 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.”
