Many people travelling to Africa dream of being close to the wildlife and one of the most favorite animals is the elephant. The elephant is often imagined as a beautiful, gentle and magical giant, which they are, but they can also be upset, frightened and aggressive. And it is dangerous to be close to a not happy elephant. They are strong and when they show they unhappiness, a human being is smashed easily.
But of course there are also situations when an elephant comes close and offers the African safari guests a magical moment. And it can be very close, as Alan Murphy experienced on one of his safaris in Zambia.
