Elephants with baby
I had a wild experience after this photo .. back at the cottage, I was soaking outside in a small pool when an elephant approached. She came over to the courtyard's fence and pushed against it. Then, it cracked against the weight of her body as she leaned in for water. With only my head exposed, I looked up and spoke to her as she drew several trunks and showered us both .. amazing.
Be careful what you ask for .. two days ago in Cape Town, I had arranged to swim with Great White Sharks. Actually, it was a cage dive and I'm told it's quite safe. Not too crazy or even physical but exciting nonetheless. Anyway, much to my disappointment, the dive company called off our excursion due to weather (large rolling waves). Always the optimist, I thought these game drives in Kruger Park might make up for it .. little did I know, I would be getting wet with an elephant today.
O segundo momento mais esperado do safari: café quentinho (quase fervendo) para aguentar o frio de 6 horas da manhã! ☕🥶🇿🇦
