What’s Better Than Elephants in the Wild?

For $100, we got our own jeep, mud and all, for four hours of elephant spotting on safari in Sri Lanka. While we got tossed and whiplashed through the eco-park near Sigiriya (the rock one must climb in Sri Lanka), and hung on for dear life in the flatbed part of the safari jeep, I enjoyed every minute of the roller coaster ride. The five or six jeeps all talk to each other to guarantee that we will see elephants. Ironically, we saw the first two groups right next to the highway. Later we saw a small herd munching away as the sun set.

And what is better than seeing elephants with friends? Baby elephants!
