Playful vervet at my door. This vervet monkey was playing right outside my door at Toka Leya Safari Camp, not far from Victoria Falls.

The vervet monkey , or simply vervet, is an Old World monkey of the family Cercopithecidae native to Africa. The term "vervet" is also used to refer to all the members of the genus ''Chlorocebus''. The five distinct subspecies can be found mostly throughout Southern Africa, as well as some of the eastern countries.
