23 February – Elephant bath, Chitwan, Nepal

We camped in the most amazing spot, right on the banks of the Rapti River in Chitwan. In the morning the elephants strode past our tent on their way to the river.
Bathing with the elephants was a fantastic experience, and we tried it many times!
First some pictures of the kids.
Then some pictures of Nina in action - quite some acrobatics there!
And Temba helped his father to gain enough courage to take a swim as well.
The kids also loved to ride bareback on the elephants along the river.
Atlas showed a lot of courage when he sat on the elephant Basantikali, matching his baby weight against a four ton elephant.
