Chapter 24 The Eland

While driving from Mbizi station one morning after nightshift, I came across a bull Eland standing in the road. I had my rifle in the bakkie but decided not to go for it because this was a beautiful sight. He had a blue green colour on his shoulder which indicated that he was an old bull.

I sat there for a few minutes looking at this magnificent beast until he decided to move off. He ambled to the side of the road and stood next to the fence looking at me and gave one lurch and was over the fence. I could not believe this as he had no run-up but just jumped over the fence from a stand still.

What an experience!
