Splish splash…Elephants having fun.


During my recent visit to Madikwe to temperature was often in excess of 35C

Most of the Elephants we saw were either in water or headed towards it.

Most of these images were taken at the waterhole at Jaci’s Tree Lodge

Up close and very personal…in the water
And on land…

A mud pack facial did not seem to get rid of these wrinkles!

“Out of our way…”

Play time…

on the “war path”

The elephants did not want to share the water with anything.
In this case, they chased off the Waterbuck.

Up close…

I had to fit in at least one “butt-shot”…

And speaking of “butt”… bombs away.

Just having fun…
These images were taken during game drives from these Jaci’s lodges.
My thanks to our hosts and ranger.
