... We were so close that we made eye contact and I could have almost reached out and touched him. It was thrilling! He is 46 years old and will likely live between 60 and 70 years. He is in his sexual prime now, so if you know of any single female elephants, give him a call!

Our next big thrill was seeing two female lions, three cubs (two male and one female) and a male lion. They looked full and sleepy, but the youngsters had a bit of ...
