A large bull elephant in the camp

By Patrick O’Brien on April 26, 2008

A large bull elephant somehow managed to get into the camp…

A staff member forgot to close the electric fence after returning from a game drive. This gave the large bull time to get into the camp and make use of the camps water resource by breaking the ripping up the water pipes. Much to my dismay, I bumped into the large elephant on my way to work at 5 am in the morning. Of course one never expects to physically bump into an elephant a mere 2 meters away. I managed to get him out of the camp after using some rather persuasive methods.
