Kelsey, thanks for the insight on elephants skin and wrinkles. Learning something new is always good.

I’m glad you enjoyed learning something new William.

Lovely! The wrinkles underline their knowledge of routes, way to seek for water and so on… the images of wisdom

Thanks Francesca, their wrinkles really do remind us of the incredible wisdom they have!

20+ years of travel to Africa, hundreds of game drives and many, many wonderful visits to Londolozi and I just learned several new things about Elephants – thank you Kelsey.

My pleasure Jeff. We are always learning something new out here and I’m glad to hear you are too.

Kelsey, Thanks for a great educational post on elephants. We thought we knew a lot, but you took it to another level! 🙂

Always a pleasure Michael & Terri- I’m very happy you enjoyed the blog!

Great informative post with some beautiful photographs! Thanks 🙏🏻

Thank you Marcia

Well done Kelsey … a nice description that should help us the next time we see those noble creatures!

Thank you Bob & Lucie – I hope you will be seeing lots of elephants again soon!

Thanks for the interesting article on elephant skin.

Only a pleasure Christa 🙂

Thanks Kelsey for a most interesting and informative blog! Always learning from you all at Londolozi. Being a wrinkly myself I wish I could make the excuse that I’m using those wrinkles to hydrate 😂. Sadly it’s the reverse being at sea for 40 years..but perhaps like an elephant I have many memories and tales to share. 😉

My pleasure Cally. I’m glad to hear you are always learning something new – and I’m sure you could share plenty of great stories with us too!

Thank you for bringing my elephant knowledge to a new level. There is so much to learn about the animal species and it’s articles like this that really help the Londolozi audience understand the nuances of each one.

Thank you Denise, the learning is never-ending and we are always happy to share our stories!

I love your blog Kelsey; firstly, the information was super fascinating; second, I love how your inquisitiveness led to research and an answer to your initial question! Thanks!!

Thanks for this interesting blog Kelsey. Ellies are my favourite animal and the younguns simply melt my heart with their antics. I guess if they can have wrinkles, then it’s OK for us to have them also. Thanks again for sharing.
