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.
