Elephants in the garden

Olepangi Farm, our beautiful base from where our safaris originate, is theoretically fenced. Although we border Ole Naishu (a 36,000 acre ranch) and often see elephant coming down our ridge line the idea is that they stay out allowing our beautiful gardens to flourish. Sadly for our local farmers with the temptation of beautiful, sweet, ripe maize just over the fence, pushing through a bit of electric wire was a piece of cake for 3 large bull elephants. And so on Monday morning we found ourselves chasing elephants back onto Ole Naishu…..a pretty exciting way to start the day. Below is a photo of the troublesome trio!
