[VIDEO] Baby Monkeys Having Fun In The Wild

Traveling around the world at a slow pace we love to capture animals in the wild.

On our day trip to Jonkershoek Nature Reserve in South Africa we saw a bunch of young baboons having fun.

Nothing is more fascinating as young animals playing with each other in the wild. Monkeys and especially baboons are funny to watch as they interact in such a familiar way. Lay back and enjoy the moments we captured of

I’m searching for natural beauty and wilderness, while I’m travelling relentlessly to find delightful places and encounters with wildlife. I try to capture the thrill of the moments in photography and words, hoping to inspire others with the love for animals and nature.

  1. Love the videos of the baboons playing and the baby monkeys. Thank you for brightening my day….Nothing, nothing is quite like watching animals in the wild, free and happy. Having grown up in South Africa I think I took that aspect for granted, with so many trips to the Kruger park as a child. However, in our world today, nothing regarding wild animals can be taken for granted. They are all being threatened by agriculture or over development or being hunted for this that or other. Tragic.

    1. Thank you for your thoughts. We love South Africa because of it’s wildlife and vast game parks. In my opinion there are only few countries which such an amount of wild places.

  2. We read somewhere that this play can be mock scenes of future dominance contests establishing who’s alpha. But yes it looks just like a typical human family with children horseplaying!
