Hello Pete what a wonderful,amazing experience! But also a bit frightening

Lovely sighting .

Pete–your statement,,,”we are reminded of our true significance ” is so true and reminds me of one of my earliest posts after I returned from our first visit. I remember mentioning feeling exhilarated by the visit but easily recognized my insignificance in the scheme of things.
I never tire of being in close proximity to the elephants.

A wonderful sighting!

Pete, I loved the video🤗

Beautiful piece to read.

Pete, what a great sighting! Must’ve been really fun to see them playing in the mud. The little one is especially cute. We love the look on Pat‘s face and look forward to more elephant adventures ourselves at Londolozi – we’ve had a few!

Brief as the video is….it put a huge smile on my face. The very young elephant warms my heart. I so look forward to seeing elephants when we can finally return to Londolozi next October. Hamba kahle.

What a beautiful sight to see! The baby is so tiny!

So refreshing and enlightening Pete, what a great afternoon spent with the elephants ! Thanks so much for sharing 👌🙏💕

Love the video, Pete – I could sit and watch ellies all day long. Pat’s face says it all!

There’s nothing better than watching a herd of elephants at play, wallowing in their mud bath and laughing inwardly whilst observing the babies trying to use their trunks. Thanx for including the video!

So cool! Great sighting.

Wow! Again…..WOW! What a gift. Even those of us thousands of miles away were SO moved. Thank you!

The smile on Pat’s face says it all Pete. A thrill of a lifetime. Thanks for sharing. Enjoyed it thoroughly.

An amazing experience to spend time with Elephants!!

Looks like an incredible experience!!
