Elephant Interaction (30th March 2020)

Tony is having an elephant interaction at the Elephant Cafe near the Zambezi River, near Livingstone, Zambia on Sunday, 22nd March 2020. These large males were rescued from Zimbabwe several years ago during a big drought. Tony and his Zambian friend, Ethan are feeding the elephants natural plant material that they would find and eat in the wild. Their trunks are full of strong muscles and they suck in their food before putting it in their mouth. Elephants eat up to 16 hours per day. Feeding, touching and being with them was a magical experience! :)

Botswana (18th March 2020)

At present, I’m travelling around lovely Botswana. Country 125. Hot weather and kind, friendly people. Cheers, Tony :).

Now in Gaborone, capital of Botswana (9th March 2020)

Dear all friends and followers, hope everyone is well. I’m now in Gaborone, capital of Botswana – country 125! It’s much warmer and dryer than the UK here! Relaxing in nice surroundings, birds chattering outside.

My trip began with a long flight to Joburg, South Africa, where I stayed with a lovely South African guy, Niel for a night. The following day it was an 8 hour bus ride to Botswana. People were friendly, kind and helped me cross the border, I didn’t even have to leave the bus! Immigration staff came to me! A Botswanian lady kindly helped me change money and 40 minutes after departing the border, I was in Botswana’s sprawling capital. I’m staying in a nearby village with a lovely lady from Zimbabwe.
I head north in a couple of days and begin exploring the nature. Warmest wishes to one and all, Tony the Traveller. Happy to be travelling again!
