We had finished our volunteer anti-poaching for the day and were invited on a gamedrive. As we drove down the road we heard a crashing in the distance. An entire herd of elephants was bearing down on our game viewer in a determined and straigh march. Our driver deftly put the land cruiser into reverse and out of the oncoming path of the trampling giants. We watched them in awe as they stomped through the road in all of their terrifying beauty and brute power.
