A Christmas morning feeling

3rd October 2013

Thursday 3rd October 2013

Woke up early with the baboons kicking off down the river, a guess would be a young leopard was taking a shot at one.

As I was awake I couldn’t wait any longer, I was desperate to see if there was anything on the camera trap, it was like waking up to see what santa had brought you on Christmas morning. Surely there must be something with all the elephant activity, in fact there was still one knocking about the camp somewhere.

Success, I got him and he’s big. It’s not the best photo and you have to look hard but that’s my tent and that’s the front of an elephant’s head with its trunk and tusks. Or at least that’s what I wanted to see but alas I think it’s actually me carrying books!

The elephant was out and about all night, hey may have not come in front of the camera though, I need to work on my positioning of the trap. Hopefully a bit more luck at the next camp.
