Elephants up close at Kruger National Park

Elephants up close at Kruger National Park  |  Kruger National Park, South Africa  |  I must say that Elephants have always been my weakness, and yesterday got the chance to see them up close and personal during our afternoon safari, courtesy of Tinga Lodge at the Kruger National Park in South Africa. Tomorrow I am off to Bostwana, so I expect to see plenty more at Chobe, but this is what I have been able to experience so far.

We were driving on our Land Rover talking to our driver and ranger, making jokes of the naughty Baboons that we have just passed, when there they were. A game of over seven Africa Elephants right before our eyes. So close that it felt we could touch them. Grown ups, babies, males and females. All there bathing and eating next to us. Not much more to say. Just enjoy the videos. CM
