The Thirsty Elephant Herd along the Chobe

After witnessing the excitement of a single elephant on the edge of the river taking a drink, the boat headed a bit deeper into Chobe National Park. Then as we drifted, a breeding herd came for a sip. By the end of my African adventure, my ‘elephant in the wild’ counter may have topped 100 across all my days in Africa. But each time it was indeed special. Very special.

    Some entrepreneur should open up an elephant bar for the thirsty ones.

      There actually was a bar right along the river a few clicks down river. But since the water was high, it was still underwater.

      And, if you plan to be that entrepreneur, I don’t recommend including all you can eat buffet. I was amazed at the volume of food an elephant eats. Incredible.
