What a feeling!

I enjoyed that sighting!

My guests from Sweden had very mixed feelings about this Thanda Elephant sighting. But all of them agreed that the encounter with the young Elephant bull was one of the most extraordinary experiences they ever had.

Trackers and guides are used to the ways of these gentle giants and therefore can react accordingly. This young male was just walking down the road and gave just us a few interested looks before he moved into the bush. He was neither aggressive nor agitated but my first-time-safari-guests experienced the very special thrill of being close to one of the big five.

What a feeling!
