Elephants for Africa

Day 18 we packed up and left Moremi for Savuti in the South of Chobe Reserve. The roads are a challenge and a lot of it needs to be done in 4×4. On the road we came across a Python of about two meters long. The area is real bush. No electricity or cell phone signal so if one breaks down or runs out of fuel you pretty much stay there until a lion comes to finish you off. Once we arrived at Savuti we siphoned our spare fuel into the bakkie, set up camp and went out to explore. Once again a lot of the area was fairly overgrown but at least the signage was an improvement. Elephants are everywhere at Savuti. You trip over them around every corner. After a short game drive we returned to camp for a well earned drink and braai. Our camera had by this time run out of battery; however the Savuti staff kindly allowed us to charge it on their generator. The night was calm and warm and full of the sounds of the bush including an elephant that decided to feed all around our tent. Corinne now has an elephant phobia J.
