On our way back to base camp, we spotted a small herd of elephants. Wayne led us through an amazing tunnel of bushes and trees (it felt like a secret passage!) to a kopji. There we quietly climbed up about 12 feet and sat, watching closely as the elephants strolled around just a few feet below. There was one elephant in particular that looked so wise....it turns out that she is very old and getting ready to die. Her eyes were so powerful...
After the elephants moved on, we hiked back to our vehicles, and continued our drive back towards base camp.
Tomorrow we leave base camp, and the bush, to head back to Swakopmund. It will be so sad to leave!
