There’s a magical time, when the sun sets and the waterfall creates a swirling mist, when day dies and night is born, and when Africa’s darker side appears.
That’s when the landscape changes and even the bright flames of the campfire aren’t enough to fill the shadows.
Just beyond your circle of light, unseen yes pry, waiting…
While others slink around the tent, causing the camera to tremble and blur the memory.
It’s only when – at last – the day breaks, that you realise the elephants have been there all the time – watching over you with age-old wisdom.
At last. You can relax, get the coffee going, and embrace another magical day in Africa.
