I was shopping in town today and on my way home I made short detour onto the Thanda Safari Savanna before returning to Thanda House.

I encountered this Elephant bull who patiently posed for a ‘below eye level ‘ sunset shot. I just had to open the door of my SUV and to lean down a bit to get the correct angle. Taken with my iPhone 😊

THE MORNING POST – uMkhulu and uGogo

In the Zulu language these two words represent grandfather and grandmother, but they also mean old and revered man and old and revered woman. When looking at Thanda Safari’s Elephants than these two individuals deserve these ‘titles’.

One of the two largest bulls around 50 years old and Thanda’s oldest Elephant lady approximately the same age. A few days ago I caught them together in one picture striding along with the herd.

Enjoy your day 😊
