Favorite thing: How do you stop an Elephant from charging? Take away its credit card. OK. That?s an old joke and the 3-ton Mother Elephant pictured did not have a sense of humour. So what happened? I had just picked up 2 hitchhikers on the Botswana Border on my way to Victoria Falls. The guys spotted these 2 elephants and suggested I stop and take some pictures. The mother and baby where happily strolling away from me. I stopped to adjust me camera when I heard my 2 passengers shout ?RUN? at the same time. That was enough for me! I ran back to my still running car and sped off laughing with my guests. Luckily for me there were a few trees to slow down what could have been a good trampling. Now that would not have been fun.
