“They say that somewhere in Africa the elephants have a secret grave where they go to lie down, unburden their wrinkled gray bodies, and soar away, light spirits at the end.” ― Robert McCammonBoy's
A few weekends back we had our annual team building at the Voi Wildlife Lodge.
It boarders the expansive Tsavo East National Park.
One of the animal's watering spots was by the hotel. We got to see the animals so close.
You become one with nature.
I love the wild. I am so glad i was born in Africa!!

I am intrigued by elephants. They are large but they are so emotional.
You better treat an elephant right because they have EXCLLENT memory and they hold grudges for years!
They will remember you years later by your scent/smell.
If you were good to them they hug you with their trunk, raise you in the air and carry you around on their tusks. It's their way of saying . "My friend! how i missed you!!"

If you were cruel to an elephant, WOE unto you. It will trumple the life out of you.

Another thing of interest, is that Elephants bury their dead!! Yes! they hold funerals for their dearly departed.
They sing..more like blow out sounds using their trunks. They weep and wail. They dig up a grave, roll the dead in it, and throw soil over the grave.

How cool!!

Happy Weekend Folks.
