Elephant comes to camp at Mombo
This younger male elephant came in to camp everyday to eat from the Amarillo trees. I felt like I was a safe distance from him and everyday I spoke to him. From the first day, he has responded by lifting how trunk to “smell” me. If I would walk a little further, he would. If I stopped so would he. I took this little video of him after 4 days of interacting with him.
He seems to have left his herd which so often young bulls do. Hopefully a larger older bull will take him u see his “wings” so to speak to guide him through proper behaviour etc.
It’s moments like this that are so special and can not be matched.
