2021-03-07: Elephant in Timbavati

I ran out of day before I ran out of my to-do list, but thought one image was better than nothing. And if it is only going to be one, it better be of my very favourite 🙂

We came across a huge herd of elephants on the way back to camp after our morning game drive whilst staying at Kings Camp in the Timbavati; you can see we were well into the morning by the quality of light and the shadows, but it was too wonderful not to stop, even though the photo opportunities were a bit challenging. No matter where I looked, close to the vehicle or father off, there were elephants in every direction. A happy place indeed.

Wishing everyone a wonderful week ahead.

Timbavati Highlights

While I have been home now almost a week, I thought I would continue on with posting my highlights of each area I visited in Southern Africa, and then move on to other blog post formats.  I came home with over 13,300 images, so I will have lots to work through over the next couple of months.

I hope you enjoy, and have a great day!
