Ghana: Mole NP – Elephants at Your Hotel Door

I woke up early to have breakfast before the morning safari and lucky (or unlucky) for me missed two elephants coming to eat bushes literally in front of my hotel door. It was fun to watch them from about 15-20 meters, but imagine opening the door first thing in the morning (sleepy, confused, and eyes half-open) and coming face to face (like within an arm’s stretch) with two humongous African elephants. With nowhere to run.
