The week for me was summed up firstly by amazing Elephant viewing, with great colours, lighting and clouds, as well as the Tamboti female, her cub and their antics. The young female spent 3 full days alone, whilst her mother was out hunting, then mating with both the Tu Tones Male and the Camp Pan Males together. Some very interesting behaviour displayed and has our entire Ranging and Tracking team pondering theories we had studied for many years collectively. The week was wet and overcast, but we have been spoilt with some beautiful afternoons, some fantastic game viewing and the most amazing Sunset last night to end it off! I hope you enjoy this week in pictures!!
