Speaking of interesting, yesterday when we arrived home from the flight we found ten elephants in our back yard. They have been making frequent visits during the last few weeks, slurping up water and chewing down the trees. I had a feeling that they would return later in the evening, to clean up the water from the bird bath. At 4:02am I woke to the sound of trees cracking, I got up to see how many where outside and quickly sat back down as there were five (one very large mama) right outside the window, one was looking right at me! I did not want to startle them and cause them to come any closer to the house, they already were a bit to close for comfort! Had I been able to open the window I could have grabbed their tails! The thoughts of how I could possibly capture a picture of these beautiful animals at work came to mind, after a bit of contemplation, I decided that it was best to just enjoy their company and this unique experience and remain with only a mental picture! The herd then moved off and made their way to the restaurant. As we headed out for the flight we saw all twenty of them heading down to the river.
Elephants (Tembo) have been my favourite animals since I can remember, even as a child I knew that I would one day spend a significant amount of time with them! I am extremely happy to announce the launch of our new website!! Our many hours learning the parks, safari towns and many products, combined with creativity, patience and inspiration from this beautiful land, has turned into something I am very grateful to share with our families and friends, their families and their friends, clients - current and future. We will be continually developing the site, adding new packages, excursions, East African wildlife videos and options for travellers to East Africa.
