Riding lessons......................


..............African style!


Chilly morning ride in Botswana, with Chris the handler, aboard huge but gentle Cathy. We were accompanied by her adopted grandson - the cutest baby elephant ever. He swam in the Delta alongside us as we shivered, but thoroughly enjoyed, viewing the magnificent beauty of the African bush from above.

Just a glimpse of what will come once I'm home again - another journey of a lifetime in Southern Africa. Internet very sparse, but tonight I'm able to actually post a pic (although it took forever) and to tell you we are now enjoying Victoria Falls in Zambia.

  11. Looks like you are having a great time. The elephants are fantastic, I love how they are so family oriented. I guess even elephant nans have to look after their grands too!
