Driving Along Leopard Loop we met a bull elephant, he was standing on the road. I could identify him as Ed, one of the ellies often seen in camp.

Shortly after stopping to look at him, he acting strangely, a bit like very young elephants do. At first he was a good 10 meters away from the vehicle, but then he started reversing, walking backwards. and only stopped about 3 meters from the vehicle.

Then he started kneeling down, dust bathing, lying down, playing with his trunk. It was very strange. But we enjoyed watching him, taking pictures and videos, and he only stood up after about 40 minutes to finally walk away!
