Elephant Riding in Zimbabwe - Outdoor Wednesday


Susan at A Southern Daydreamer is the gracious hostess for Outdoor Wednesday. Participants post pictures of anything that they might find outdoors. Come join in!




My post for today is an outdoor Elephant Riding in Zimbabwe. As you can tell from the pictures, Elephant Riding is very scary since you are very high (you could touch the trees crowns!) One woman payed for the trip but couldn't do it, and regreted it when all of us came back safely.



After the trip we had the chance to feed the elephant that carried us and caress it.

Have a great Outdoors Wednesday, girls!

Sounds like a wonderful experience, but I'm afraid I'd be the woman who couldn't go through with it. Don't think I could take being that high off the ground! Great photos, though.

Wow, now that is one amazing trip! (I am afraid I'd have been that poor woman who paid, and chickened out.)
You are brave. elephants are HUGE!

Thank you for visiting my site for Outdoor Wednesday. I think elephant riding trumps my Grand Canyon. Wow that must have been so exciting.

That was so brave of you to ride that elephant! I would have been scared to death! Even feeding them looked scary!

Thanks for sharing!
