I have to specify “wild” because I worked at a zoo for a while, so I was very familiar with elephants (and especially their poop, that was my job). I’m just going to share a bunch of photos today. You better believe I took hundreds, so I’ve worked hard to narrow these down to some of the best.
This was actually my first view of elephants…way off in the distance!
This is the Voi Wildlife Lodge…we went here once a week to use the internet and watch the wildlife coming into the giant watering hole. This is where I got a lot of my elephant photos (and all of the ones I’m sharing today)
There are some elephants on the horizon…hope they come in!
They came! (We were in the middle of a drought, so the watering hole was pretty irresistible to a lot of animals.)
I like the way they look when they drink, so I took a lot of these photos, full disclosure
Sometimes they rest their trunk on their tusks and it is very cute!
I like the crane between their legs
To give you an idea of the landscape (Tsavo National Park)
Headin back to the bush
One of my favourite elephant photos
Tsavo is known for its “red” elephants because the mud is red and they love to rub it all over themselves
A solitary elephant eyeing a family group coming in
Time to pllaaaaaaay
This would be me if I were an elephant
I just like this one because he looks like Cthulu
