My friend Bridget treated me to a walk with elephants as my birthday gift - totally fabulous! She fetched me early on a Sunday morning and we went out to the Magaliesburg for the elephant encounter. There are 3 elephants, a mom and daughter, and then an orphan who is now part of the group.

As I stood with my hand up against the elephants, my heart broke for the many elephants who are killed by poachers for their tusks. We heard their low rumble a few times during the encounter - it was magnificent.
