Pafuri camp March 9 from Barbara

On Tuesday, our last full day, we were really hoping to see lions and rhinos, what we found instead was hippos out of the water and two seriously close encounters with elephants. Again you must check out Mel's video – we got REALLY close to the elephants, or should I say, they to us – but it was a peak experience and I think we all felt seriously privileged to see them under these circumstances – slightly scary but fabulous.  I am wrapping up but will say that as we pulled into the camp this night we encountered four hippos out of the water – everyone thinks hippos are strictly Fantasia creatures but everyone we talked to said – beware, especially of the males who are super aggressive.  We were very careful.  There is so much more to say but I need to leave something for Mel to talk about except to say this was a trip of a lifetime!
