Walk to water …
Imagine you are a two month old Thanda Baby Elephant …
“A hot day today. Mum is walking very fast. Grandma wants to find water. So we walk and walk and walk. I wish I had longer legs.
That grass is too high – Being the smallest is no fun 😦
I can’t see a thing – mum wait!!!
OK – That’s better!
Oh, I got an itch! Mummy, don’t move, I am gonna use your legs as a rubbing post.
Yes, yees, yeees – much better!
I am thirsty – let’s go!
Mummy come on – I see the water, I see the water!
Give me a bit of space, pleeeease!
Nice family – what do you think? :-)”
This is a “record” of a walk to water, enjoyed by many Thanda guests on sunny morning.

Every day your blogs makes my heart smile Christian. The elephants are my most favorite! Thank you so much for sharing. I hope to come back with my husband soon, Thanda was the best weekend of my life!
We are so enjoying your fantastic photos and stories on your blog! Especially the ones that also include our friend Bheki! Loved the spear!
