    Careful guys!!! The R565 is a terrible road to travel at wee hours of the morning, late afternoons and at night.

    The R565 is the main road linking the major freeways from Johannesburg and Pretoria with the Pilanesberg and Sun City. The entrance to both these destinations are on this road.

    * Make sure your doors are locked at all times
    * Hide all valubals and handbags in the glove compartment or under the seats
    * DO NOT stop for long periods of time at the Stop signs. If you are sure no cars are coming,
    don't even stop at all. Keep the wheels rolling.
    * If a car is infront of you, keep a space the size of one car between you and the car infront,
    so that if something happens, you have easy access out of the line to escape.
    * Close your windows when nearing the 4 way stop, and completely ignore the vendors.
    * If you get a flat wheel, DON'T STOP!! Drive till the nearest house/business centre
    * Be vigilant and alert at ALL TIMES!!!
    * When involved in a car-jacking, comply with all the attackers demands, and avoid looking at
    them in the eyes. Look down and keep it cool. DON'T try and be a superman, you'll just end
    up getting hurt. You can always buy a new Rolex, but your life is irreplaceable.

    These monkeys are soooo adorable but if people feed them they jump on cars and can be dangerous to children...they also get lazy to find food.
