    I can't resist, and show other elephants here...

    They are always accompanied with these white birds. Don't know if they are Ardeolas or Egrettas.
    If somebody knows...

    Elephants and birds.

    This one is called Ombrette in French (don't know he English name), scientific name: Scopus umbretta.
    It's easy to recognize it with it's anvil shaped head.

    I don't really know birds...
    There are more than 200 species around the camp, like Merops, Musophaga, Lamprotornis, Egretta, Ibis, and many others...

    Sometimes difficult to see them in the foliage!
    Don't know what is this one. It seems that it's occupying the nest of another species.

    Birdwatching.

Boromo Warnings and Dangers

    Yes, they are cute.
    But they are not in a zoo. There are no fences.
    That’s their territory and they appreciate that f***g tourists know it.
    This one is not satisfied because we are there.
    It’s charging at… US…!

    Only a part of the animal is visible: just because I did not wait for it to show...!

    This elephant only pretended to charge and stopped soon.
    But it can be dangerous.
    Really.

    NEVER walk around the camp on your own.
    The guards always have a gun.

    Charging...

    "We are too close, murmured the guard, this one has seen us and does not like it: look at it's ears... When they put their ears like that, it means they are angry."
