I never thought much of elephants until I saw them in person on my safari trip. We saw a large herd of elephants and it was simply spectacular seeing them stomp across the plains. For such huge animals, they walk with such grace and elegance. They got really close to one of the jeeps nearby. Our guides were very angry at the other jeep for being so close to the elephants, and we actually thought the elephants were going to tip them over. Instead, they just surrounded the jeep and walked around it. It's almost like they checked it out, and then decided, eh, we're not that interested. They were very lucky.
