Carina Blofield of Africa Geographic recently visited elephant habitats in Botswana and Zimbabwe. On the safari, she stayed at the Elephant Sands Lodge in Botswana. It's located at a popular elephant watering hole, so it's a great place to see these giant animals up close.

The toilets are surrounded by large pointed rocks. These are put in place to discourage elephants from getting too close.
Some thirsty elephants brave them anyway, then reach down into the toilets to suck water from them up their trunks.
