Of course one expects to see elephants in the Addo Elephant National Park and we were not disappointed:
Three bulls at the Peasland Waterhole spent a long time slurping water from the bottom of the concrete waterhole (note the warthogs are almost lost in it – an indication of how low the water level was) and blowing it around the dry sides. At times they almost bumped heads they were standing so close to each other.
A large family group gathered at the Lismore Waterhole were fascinating to watch as they included elephants of all ages.
They stood close together to drink.
The elephants presented a forest of legs when seen from the rear.
Two young male calves busied themselves on the fringe pushing and shoving each other – just as little boys might do at a family gathering:
Look at this tiny youngster among a smaller family group drinking at the Marion Baree Waterhole:
This car – and several others behind it – had to wait a while before these two elephants decided to give way.
Our last view was this lone elephant having a late afternoon drink at the Domkrag Waterhole.
