African Elephant Encounter Tarangire National Park
Whilst on safari at Tarangire National Park in Tanzania, we stopped off at the Tarangire Safari Lodge to have lunch.
Animal spotting certainly works up an appetite.
So we settled in beside the fantastic swimming pool located beside the restaurant and accommodation facilities.
We ordered our drinks and watched my girls enjoy themselves cooling off in the winter sun.
A few minutes went by, next thing we know a African Elephant and her baby decided to join us for a spot of lunch. She was looking for fruit on the trees. She wasn't all concerned with our presence.
She was ever so graceful, but still on alert to keep her baby safe.
I don't think you could get much closer to a wild African Elephant if you tried.
Such an amazing experience we will treasure for the rest of our life's.
Please enjoy our video of our up close encounter with a wild African Elephant.

He was just starting to receive recognition for his square board-paintings, when his life was cut short in 1972, he was mistaken for a fleeing thief and fatally shot by the police......
