“One of my greatest travel experiences was while on safari in the Timbavati Game Reserve. Our Simbavati Lodge tracker and guide stopped our jeep in the middle of a herd of elephants.

I was intimidated by their size but it was so exhilarating to be so close to them. My favorite was a smaller elephant (the guide referred to as a “teenager”) who stopped to perform by lifting and shacking his trunk about 3 feet from our jeep. All of the game drives had been incredible, but this one “topped the cake” – it is an experience I will never forget!”
