A mother and her offspring in the first herd of elephants we saw in Africa, her baby stood by her so close the whole time. The mother sprayed mud on themselves to keep cool. You can see she only has one tusk - maybe she lost it digging for water, food or in a tussle. If you are wondering – it is impossible for poachers to take ivory from animals without killing them, they usually die of a slow haemorrhage after the poaching #stoppoaching
This big guy has been named Beefy. Beefy weighs approx 6.5 tonne and spends 20 hours of each day eating and the other 4 sleeping. Daily he eats 350kg worth of plants and then shits 155kg back out. That's one serious plant-based diet!!
It is so very beautiful here on Nambiti Game Reserve. Nature in all her magnificence. .
Unfortunately I have woken up with the full fibro flu this morning - that EBV/strep throat that makes it difficult to swallow and the migraine that renders any light too bright. First big one since starting @medicalmedium protocol 18 months ago.
. I missed the dawn safari as a result and have not come armed with the usual supplements I'd use to kick it. So I'm improvising with lots of lemon water with raw honey, wormwood (I bought for malaria prevention) and gargling oregano oil. Any other suggestions most welcome :)
Rest and the Angels to the rescue. ॐ
