Day 23 - Leg 5 - River Crossing & Monkeys

This continues the series of my Motorcycle Adventure travels from Durban back to Cape Town which was the fourth goal, over what had now become quite a few weeks. Details of the "" whole trip here.

One of the risks travelling on your own and after rains in these areas, is that river crossings over low level bridges can be interesting. In this case I was lucky, the water level was only about 10-12cm deep and very slow flowing, so I could even stop half way across the bridge and take some pictures.

A little further on down the road I was lucky to see a whole troupe of monkeys crossing the road, and was able to stop early enough so that the bike did not frighten them all away.On this trip I only brought my little pocket camera with me which does not have a very strong zoom so not ideal for wildlife pictures.

Stopped in the middle of the bridge with my foot on a block
Looking upstream - this much water in semi-desert is unusual
Looking back after making it through without getting wet
Closer up
Check out the Monkeys from fence on left to fence on right I make it about 19
One main man on the fence the rest cowering in the bush
Spot another one in the tree on the right high up
