I remember very glad our visit in your beautiful Elephant sanctuary. All the elephant's carers were very kind and many thanks for them for this extraordinary experience, with nearest contacts with pretty elephants. Elephants were very kind and pretty and touch and embrace of trunk of elephant lady Thandi was unforgettable. I hope you will not to be affected with contemporary problem of infection.
