Weekly Photo Challenge: Culture

On taking a very short drive out of Johannesburg into the Magaliesburg, I caught a glimpse of these Elephants and their keepers.  I was amazed at how obedient the Elephants were and how they followed their keepers around.  The sticks the men are carrying where not used on the Elephants.  The elephants seemed very happy and well cared for.

  4. I have read about other parts of Africa where they do this with young traumatised elephants, eg those who have seen their mothers killed, but I didn’t know that they did it here, right on our doorstep! Wonderful post, Hope. Thank you.

  13. Cool pics Esperanza.
    Have to say, in all the years I travelled through Magaliesburg, I never saw elephants next to the road 😉
    Did see the gorgeous mountain though!!
