    Hi all

    I just came back from a 6 week stint in southern Africa where amongst other activities I guided a group of students for 3 weeks in Namibia. One of the activities was to search for elephants and study their behaviour. We found a herd of elephants and some bulls and came much closer than anticipated (see pictures). These were wild elephants and they are not being fed.

    Ha, that's my little secret. No, that was in the Ugab River in Damaraland in the NW part of Namibia. That was really close, just a couple of yards between us. The one elephant nearly touched the front of the vehicle.
