He was the only one that showed a bit of aggression towards another elephant.

Aat identified the collared elephant we saw as Mune - he was collared by STE - Save the Elephants.

Thanks Aat! :thumbs_up:

I am sure his new friend told him that he stood out like a sore thumb and took him down to the dam!

Let's for a while return to Tsendze..........

We really enjoy staying in camp - long past are the days when we left at gate opening and returned at gate closing time every day! I can sit for hours just enjoying the peace and there is always something to point the camera at!

Thanks Sheenaugh-Lee, Hilda and Pumbaa! :thumbs_up:

On one occasion I wanted to go to Mooiplaas picnic site to do some birding but there was a problem - a big one!
