Kiba Point

The Welcoming Committee

20 January 2011

I just returned to Kiba Point from a two-week vacation in Dar es Salaam and Zanzibar. Based on the crowd that turned out to greet me, I think I've been missed.

Mustafa, SRS Assistant Manager, with a family of elephants.

Within five minutes of me getting into the office, the elephants, including a one-year-old calf, showed up and started browsing 5 meters from the kitchen. And I promise they didn't show me their butts the whole time. In fact, at one point the matriarch, pictured on the right, started running up to me, though whether it was to give me a hug or knock me over, I can't really be sure.
