Elephant bathing

Elephant near Skukuza

Elephant near Skukuza

We saw some elephants walking through the bush near Skukuza. We were going to drive past them as pictures of walking elephants are not great and there was not much sun.


One elephant strayed from the rest and went to a waterhole and began to drink and he then started to throw water on himself.

A bit of patience allowed us to get an action picture of one of the big-five animals.

I have seen elephant bathing before and yeah, it is indeed a sight to watch. I have even seen them having the mud bath, which is rather interesting than the ordinary one. And yeah, that one is indeed a great shot!
