I have a funny tail to tell you.
When I went to Kruger on the 17th September 2008 one day we decided we would go out of the park out the Phabeni gate, and go to Hazyview to an Elephant sanctuary.
I've seen elephant in the wild - but only at a distance. They seem gigantic and yet so gentle..... I'd like to know more about these fascinating animals."
We went for the
The Trunk-in-Hand program
An experienced guide will introduce you to the elephants and you will learn about their backgrounds, behaviours, characters and more, while being able to touch, feel, feed, interact and walk trunk-in-hand with the elephants.
Well the day starts WELL!!!! We managed to lock the car keys in the car as you do???? Do you this has never happened to me before, I must tell you it was not me who locked them in the car this time.
Could the day get any better, now we are waiting for the Elephants to appear as they come down the hill we can see them, we are now getting very nervous about having to meet them as one of them is very very big
the guide starts to tell us about the animals, now we have to go up to them we have to go to each one in turn so we get to look and touch the big one and the smaller one, now it happens as one of our party is with the big Elephant some thing worries it a fly we think, to get rid of it the Elephant shakes it head, as it dose this Nigel gets hit by the Elephant and goes flying though the air like an arrow and land in a tree on his bum,
It was very funny to see, he did not seam to have been in any way heart.
The next day he had a whopper of a burse
Here are some photos of the day ( not got any of the incident )
we even get a Kiss kiss from the Elephant
we had a fab day there if you Love Elephants it is worth a visit
