A little bit later –
an elefant bull in must.
Johnny’s (our ranger) comment, when he recognised the “oncoming traffic” in the distance: “Oh, there is my friend. He did chase me yesterday”.
An experience which didn’t make him stop, but he was approaching the bull. Which in turn was clearly stating “This is my way” by shaking his head and flapping his ears. Only when being that close that it was doubtless the elefant was not giving way, Johnny pulled back – meter by meter, step by step. Finally the elefant was bored by that game and turned towards the bush.
Passing the elefant we understood why Johnny was playing this game. He wanted us to encounter elefant in must smell. It stinks, miles against the wind! And the following days we could smell by ourselves when a potentially dangerous elefant was somewhere around, even we couldn’t see him.
Of course there were the usual zebras, impalas, wildebeest, …
But if there were not the two other guest on the car?
Who knows, Monique may have freaked out.
