Rebecca, Elephant keeper
This morning our two female African Elephants, Yum Yum, (41) and Cuddles (38), enjoyed another early morning walk around the zoo. The mornings are getting cooler now and so they are keen to get out and get the blood pumping. We had to do a bit of four wheel driving – elephant style - as the recent rain has left some boggy areas. Yum Yum, being close to five tonnes, is always careful to avoid sinking into the mud as much as she can!
On the way back we stopped to wave to the Zoofari Lodge guests who were enjoying their breakfast at the main house.
