Being able to see and watch iconic “game animals” in the wild is quite a spectacle. I saw elephants as a single bull ravaging in the bush as well as herds of 15 or more peacefully grazing or drinking from a watering hole. On this day 4 of us and our driver drove an hour over to the infamous Kruger National Park in the NE corner of South Africa. It’s a huge area where animals of all persuasions are living, breeding, hunting, thriving. Humans are allowed to observe, but can’t get out of the vehicle at all. There are large fines and expulsion if caught. For the most part, the animals don’t pay us much attention. They’re obviously used to people now and feel safe enough to live their lives according to their own terms, as it should be.
