Jambo, Jumbo

I hitchhiked into Manapools. A game park in Zimbabwe. Since it was forbidden to enter this park by motor-cycle (why?).
The campground in this park didn't had a fence. During the evenings in my tent, I could hear the lions roaring or some hyena's sniffling. And sometimes a water-buffalo joined us on the camp grounds.
Or an elephant.
This one visited the tree beside my tent quite often. I always kept very quiet and when I saw how careful he was (really!) when he walked around my tent, I wasn't afraid actually.
Later on, locals told me that I camped under an "elephant-bean tree". Those beans seemed to be delicious for an elephant.
BTW: "Jambo" means in Swahili "Hello".
