Encounters with Elephants

A travel blog entry by mickoobyrne


... slowly along when rounding a bend we suddenly came upon a small herd of elephant right on the road. What a delight, they had very young who were trying to learn to pick up dust in their trunks and spray themselves, mostly unsuccessfully, while the adults attended to the very important job of eating lots of trees and bushes. We watched for about ten minutes then they slowly wandered into the bush. As we drove the short distance forward I expected to see them next to ...

... became very alert and all looked in the same direction. Skhondla Khondla suddenly jumped up and went running off, he started to roar, the lionesses all started to call to him, the sounds of all these lions roaring away was amazing, then from the opposite direction appeared what they call one of the cubs (really sub adults at 18month old) 1 of them came down and greeted the lionesses, she was soon followed by her 2 sisters and after a few minutes more their brother.

We found 2 of the bull elephants pretty rapidly, one of which was my mate B4 with whom I had my close encounter with in the first week. He was a little stroppy and we left them be when ...

... Paul sitting in a cafe I went off to look around the shops. Later in the afternoon Jelle, Paul and I went on a boat trip down the estuary to see the hippos and crocs. Whilst there were plenty of hippos in the water we did not see any crocs and the guide said this was due to the fact that the estuary was very high because of all the rain they had had. In the evening we went to John Dory's restaurant where the food was fantastic, the best mussels we have ever had, followed by a few beers ...
