Great Sunday Video, Sean. I love watching ellies! Love catching photos with the ears forward & flapping. Cheetah are definitely the cherry on top!
70 days and counting!
Setting off from camp with the intention of finding the Tsalala Female, we are swiftly interrupted by a huge herd of elephants that have just spent some time drinking at a large waterhole. As they approach us we switch the vehicle off and let the elephants surround the vehicle to feed. A magical place to be.
Large ones, small ones, all just going about their business and we feel part of it all. It is great to spend time with elephants because there is always something going on no matter where you cast your eyes. Young ones playing or learning to use their trunks, trying to intimidate us or mimicking mum. The mothers either dustbathing, feeding to milling about. As there was a lull we heard another elephant still splashing about in the waterhole not too far away and found a large male fully submerged in the water cooling off.
Just when we were thinking that the morning couldn’t get any better, we hear over the radio that a mother cheetah and two cubs have been found. We promptly pack up shop with the elephants and get ourselves across to the cheetahs.
