Elephant next to my bed

botswana

During both of my last two nights in lion camp, a sizeable herd of elephants came into camp. They were literally inches from where I was lying down - on the other side of the tent canvas. Despite their massive size, I did not hear them approach. The first thing I noticed was a quiet scraping on the top of the tent. Apparently. the larger elephants were gather the pods with a sweeping motion of their trunks.
