Up close and personal with the elephants

One of the things we do on Okambara is observe the elephants’ feeding behaviors in order to determine what a sustainable number of elephants are for a given size of farm. Some days we can see them easily, and other days they are difficult to see. (It’s absolutely amazing to me how one can “lose” a herd of 9 elephants on a farm!) The other amazing thing is how QUIET they can be. Sure, they trumpet at each other every once in a while, but normally they are near-silent. Pretty amazing given their size.

2 going x 2…
gone…without a sound!


Here’s our encounter the other day:
