One of the amazing realities of the African bush is that an animal as massive as an elephant (loxodonta africana) can simply appear and as easily disappear in the bush and undergrowth.

Although Canadian by birth, I grew up in Africa and from an early age travel became a regular part of my life. As a result I developed an early passion for my two great loves, Africa and aviation. Being fortunate to return to Africa every year with our own safari company “Explorations Africa”, all of my photos of wildlife are taken in their natural and unstaged settings. Please visit us at

    Hmmmmm, that’s exactly why I wont join any of the guided walks in the game parks……everything silently sneaks up on you!!!!!

  • LOL…but that sense of danger is half the fun! Realistically though, you’ve probably got a greater chance of dying of a snake bite in Oz than of ever being attacked on a bush walk with a guide in Africa. I wouldn’t trade the experience!=)

    love the description … and the elephant watching you out of the corner of its eye!

  • Thanks very much Carol! I definitely knew I was being watched even though ele’s seem to have a permanently lazy droop to their eyes…it definitely belies the explosive reaction and charge that could follow if he decided he didn’t want you sharing his territory!
