The tap was only a few feet from our tents

and used for cleaning teeth, water for kettle and so on.

The ablutions block is another twenty metres past Shenzi.

hippopotamus and elephants track,

it was no surprise when this gentle giant politely

made its way around our camp

to avoid disturbing us.

But what a thrill it was to see these animals.
