Robert McCammon on Africa’s elephants

“They say that somewhere in Africa the elephants have a secret grave where they go to lie down, unburden their wrinkled grey bodies, and soar away, light spirits at the end.”

    The quote is simply beautiful, and the stark photo inspires respect for this magnificent creature. The contrast of the image of the strong beast with the gentle words of the quote create a poignant contrast.

    Weereens pragtig,Dries!Olifante laat my soms so hartseer voel.Ek was verlede week weer daar in Letaba se museum en het weereens met bewondering gekyk na die groot ivoordraers se tande.Mens kan amper nie glo dat van daardie tande selfs 72kg weeg nie!

      Ons laat ook nooit maar nooit n kans verbygaan om die olifantmuseum op Letaba te besoek nie. Ek dink dis Joubert se gunstelingplek in die hele Park. Al wat n mens se asem meer wegslaan as die reuse ivoor wat daar uitgestal word, is wanneer n mens een van die groot ivoordraers in lewende lywe sien. Lewende monumente!

        Netso,ek onthou een van my kinders moes ‘n taak doen oor die Manjefieke Sewe en toe het ek gehelp en dit so interessant gevind.Voel sedertdien of ek ‘n spesiale band met daardie olifante het.
