I recently ran into this ‘fun’ image at Art Wolfe’s blog:
While it wasn’t hard to see this elephant, it brought back a lot of memories from my last safari. On that trip, my son, Justin Eleazer, wanted to explore more inland and much further west than we had ever traveled before within Chobe NP. [Mistake 1 ] Reluctantly, I agreed. Though Justin had never driven from the right side with a stick shift, he wanted to drive on this day. [Mistake 2 ] Reluctantly I agreed. Some of these roadways were quite narrow, with brush hitting both sides of the Toyota Hi-Lux. Well, getting to my point – several times on this trip, we ended up driving very close to elephants before either Justin and I spotted them. Once we ended up in the middle of an entire herd crossing the road. Justin ‘mastered’ tight turns and riding the clutch as needed that day.
