We don’t know Bongo’s age for certain, but he’s probably about six now and has been in the unit nearly 3 years, but he’s acting tough and is not daunted by the visiting wild bull elephants at the mud hole. It’s very hot in the bush this time of year, and when the bulls appear in the morning for their water and roll-around, the other young elephants give them plenty of space and sit in the shade until they have gone. But not Bongo! He dives straight in; he’s the small one with his back to us in the photo above.
