Very nice. Could use a mud room & larger pool deck.
Waiting for the bellboy to step in and ask if he would like help with his trunk.— Zin â¨ (@Z_Sin) January 19, 2020
He did, didn’t he! Tried to pick it back up for a few seconds before realising he’s an elephant and that’s never going to happen ð¤¦ð¼âï¸— Danielle (@_daniellecw) January 19, 2020
I have seen them tiptoe around tent stakes while on a walking safari; one time my husband left the tent ( on this trip) to do his business and almost bumped into an elephant. There was no sound that we heard.— Judi Kane (@Desert_Goddess) January 19, 2020
Me: "What's this item on my bill 'extra entertainment: $509.87' ? "— Albert Cory (@BobPurvy1) January 19, 2020
Clerk: "Sir, that's the elephant you ordered."
He just wanted to make sure it was ok to bring kids there.... pic.twitter.com/Heej9hMOHt— wavyballer (@wavyballer42) January 19, 2020
