The last night on our tour was spent in a gorgeous lodge in the middle of a private game reserve. The lodge is set overlooking a swift river full of crocodiles and hippos, surrounded by trees full of incredibly curious (and hungry) vervet monkeys. As we lounged with our cool drinks and good food in the luxurious comfort of our wicker patio chairs, the vervet slowly crept closer and closer like assassins in the night (though, of course, it was day, and I don't think they intended to kill us). At a safe distance they settled down on the branches and banisters nearby to watch us watch them, until eventually we both got bored with the other and went on to other things.
