Last night one of Thanda’s largest Elephant bulls showed up at the Thanda Safari Lodge reception. He decided to have a snack at one of the trees in front of lodge buildings. A remarkably uncommon encounter for guests on the way to their suites 🙂
Thanda Private Game Reserve is a member of The Leading Hotels of the World
… and then he had a drink from the small waterhole at the Lodge …
… Thanda guests and staff member were watching this gentle giant from the safety of the Thanda Safari Lodge.

I enjoyed this photo shoot 🙂
Oh, that must be dear old Thulani … I was told he likes welcoming guest and to be photographed. And he did welcome me, which was so great!
Of course it is Tholani! I too happened to be there on that very special occasion. Unforgettable!
