The name of this island originates from the belief that it was allegedly inhabited by elephants. It is hard to believe as the island is inaccessible – their shore is guarded by sharp rocks which we found extremely difficult to climb. We travelled across the island twice. First we climbed an unwooded and bushy mountain where I had to watch out for sharp acacia’s thorns and pieces of rock hidden under grass. Later on, we walked along a lovely shore where we met two natives from the village (from the mainland as the Elephant Island is deserted) who collected birds’ eggs. Probably I was the first Pole on the island.
