We checked in at the guard station before crossing the bridge into South Luangwa National Park, Zambia. A large group of vervet monkeys had overrun the area near the crossing at this point with the majority swinging around frantically. These two were the exception to the rule. A vervet mother and child embracing, ready to start another day in the wild.
