Boo ... no takers. Well, the answer was 10 visible -- see if you can locate them.

Ok, ok
If you've seen one, you've seen them all.
I was almost run down by a herd (>10) of elephants near Sun City..BTW I didn't go there..

I’ve been to Sun City. The bell boy who took us to our hotel room was so proud that Michael Jackson had stayed there that he showed us around his room too.

It’s not a trick question? Why would you ask then? I find this disturbing.

Which year; before or after Apartheid? Like Rod Stewart. Was the bell boy (your words) a 6'.5" Afrikaner?
Our driver didn't take us there.

Did you visit Rorke's Drift? The whole scenery reminds one of Pilanesberg.

It was after.

I don’t recall!

You should learn to drive!

No.

There were peacocks in the dining room.

And a casino and crocodile park.

If I remember anything else you’ll be the first to know!!

A elephant in the room could bend the room (as predicted by Ricci tensor)!

I thought finding #10 was tricky. Of course, now that I've said how many, it's spoiled.

One morning I shot an elephant in my pajamas. How he got into my pajamas I'll never know.

Elefanten i rommet – vitamin D og korona blant innvandrere
DEBATT: Verken fagfolk eller journalister har med ett eneste ord nevnt en sannsynlig bakenforliggende årsak til at mørkhudete innvandrere er mer rammet av koronasykdom.

After 10 wrecked Toyotas in the space of 8 months in Oman, I gave it a break.

See, #10 is tricky. No not pregnant -- visible in plain sight.
