When Great Plains Conservation took over management of the vast 320,000 acre Selinda Reserve six years ago we immediately stopped all hunting, knowing that animals would calm down and appreciate the protection. This year we’ve found amazing concentrations of very relaxed animals, but this bull elephant seems to be taking all of this a bit too far! He arrived in camp and literally spent the night. Staff were tip-toeing around so as to not wake him as his snores resounded through the forest. We do try to make sure that everyone in camp, guest or animal, has the perfect stay!
