Elephants at the Watering Hole

Fri, Dec 14, 2018

On our last evening of the safari, we went down to the watering hole to see who might stop by.  And boy were we happy that we did.

Here they come!

Here they are filling their trunks with water…

… and then placing the trunks in their mouths to drink the water.

After drinking they would use their trunks to sling water and mud on their backs.  Look closely below.

Shortly thereafter another group of elephants arrived:

And still another group!  It was getting crowded.

Finally this bull had had enough and challenged some new arrivals to find another spot on the watering hole.
