We have been lucky to have elephants right near camp...
A great weekDate Posted: 2014-02-17
It's been a great week for game viewing - we've seen all the Big 5 and had some wonderful moments. One that stands out most occurred on a morning game drive on a hot day. With the early morning temperature rising and no Big 5 sightings, we were worried that the heat would keep the game in the shade of the thick bush. But we gambled on the elephants stopping to drink at a nearby waterhole before it got too hot. And our plan to stake out the waterhole worked as we were rewarded by seeing the matriarch appear from thick bush, followed by the rest of the herd. The next half hour was spent watching this family group enjoying swimming and playing in the water, sometimes completely submerging themselves!
