a nosy elephant.
when young she was abandoned by her mother. the tshukudu camp nursed her and
trained her until she managed to eat by herself. she is roaming with a wild
herd, but is still friendly towards humans.
we had a really close encounter with her. her trunk grabbed our backpack and
she tried to take it.
i had to wrestle her trunk...
there is no question 'bout who'd win a fight..
Our driver/tracker for the day, Luckson.
Here he is explaining the difference between elephant poo and rhino poo.
they're fast. i saw a couple of them but this is the only picture i managed
the rhino wasn't dirty enough so he had to have a mud bath.
the trip ended with a splendid dinner in Tshudukus Boma.
nothing much happened that day. just some info sharing,
welcome-drink-drinking and checking out the Chalet (which is what they
called the cabin we stayed in).
the first animal we spotted.
It's a waterbuck. it crossed the road right in front of the jeep.
