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 gathering the pods with a sweeping motion of their trunks.
