Wild dogger, wonder if that was the same elephant as in Egilio's post #27 above?

A lot of elephant pictures ... :)

 

Show it on a very large screen and you will be transported to Africa in no time for five minutes.

 

 

If you click "Tube" you come to YouTube.com and may show it full-screen.

These images are unfortunately not of the greatest technical quality - I was a bit too excited to pay attention to the exposure ;)

 

This girl and her family came right up to our tent in Mana Pools...

I felt somewhat small sitting in the tent opening looking up at her...

...and she knew full well I was there!

From the look of the trees this wasn't the first time the family came by to scratch an itch :)

Some parts are just hard to reach with the trunk, you know...

Took this one in my 2nd month as a manager for Puku Pan Safari Lodge. Poaching made them shy and they'd become a myth to me, almost. According to the staff, the used to come in the camp every day, but I'd not seen one in the two months I'd been there. Then, one day, this old bull just wanders along. Probably of no concern to the poachers, because he's got only 1 tusk.post-16011-0-73148400-1330958083_thumb.jpg

Some brilliant shots there!

 

This is one of my favourites - a 2 day old calf having difficulty controlling its trunk whilst chewing on a blade of grass (taken in Botswana) :)

This is one of our favorite elephant snaps taken by the Mahlatini staff. It was taken in the Damaraland Camp Desert in Namibia.

Here is another shot we found inspiring, it was taken on safari in South Africa.

Same herd.

 

I love all the movement in this photo.

 

Not as good as all the "pros" on here, but still one of my personal favorites.

Something a little different. My daughter Caroline and Jabulani at Camp Jabulani. Such a wonderful trip with her.
