You’ve just described the best kind of drive – prepare for an anticipated moment, then just sit back and let nature unfold before you. Thank you for sharing your experience Kyle.

What an amazing morning! Always a surprise waiting on the drives! Love it! 🥰

Sometimes just going out with the intention to enjoy yourself, without agenda, is enough to bring about the best experiences.

Well spent afternoon and well rewarded with the elephants. They are always entertaining and just to sit and watch them is a huge reward.
