Hi Colleen and Trevor,

It was Rich, but Rich Burman, not Ferrier, and Richard Siwela was the tracker.

The elephants were so close to the vehicle! Excitement beyond belief. Great sighting.

AMAZING!! Did the last lion that “sat down” in the distance, hidden by the grass, stay and watch or did he move on as well?
Great video! Love seeing the very small little baby elephant:)

That was a very close encounter for the humans also.. Love to see how quiet and patient everyone was with the ellies so close.
Thank you for sharing this stunning video!

I agree absolutely BRILLIANT!! Those ellies are the most peaceful of beings, until you disturb the tranquility…’the force’. 🙂
LOVE THEM!!!!

Fantastic! A great write up James and I loved the video Lucien! The Lions certainly didn’t take long to get out of the way!

Elephants are large but weak and coward. The brave lions run away because they have many cubs. If the lions have no cubs, they will counter attack, and the weak elephants will scurry away. Please look at the following video, a single male lion kill a young elephant, and the whole herd of 40 elephants could not do any thing. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LL9EGwrI4e4
