Why did the elephant cross the road?
Picture the scene. You arrive in the world’s smallest airport on the world’s smallest plane and step out into sweltering heat. Your guide arrives to take you to your campsite and you look forward to your first glimpse of wildlife.
Suddenly, a baby elephant runs out onto the road in front of the jeep. How cute, you think, before you realise that baby elephants are never alone. Your head hits the chair in front of you as your guide jams on the brakes seconds before the entire herd crashes across the road. In a fleeting moment they are gone again and tranquility is restored. This is South Africa.
