I am big and you better leave!

On today’s game drive I had positioned my vehicle parallel to the path which the Thanda breeding herd of Elephant took across an open Fever Tree area.

This young bull did not like my parking spot and displayed his displeasure with various “Big Elephant Warning Signs”. When he realized that I did not move and that non of the adult Elephants came to his aid he shock his head one last time and moved on with the herd.

The Thanda guests enjoyed the “I am a big Elephant” show 🙂

  1. Christian, have you read the book “The Elephant Whisperer”? It was written by Lawrence Anthony who owned the Thula Thula Game Reserve in Zululand, South Africa. The Elephant Managers and Owners Association gave him a herd of unruly elephants. It is a true and amazing story. It is a good read. If you want it and can’t get it I will send you a copy.
