Elephant Field Day Report


Recommended Posts

We are heading into that time of the year where the daily temperatures are on the rise and the winds are picking up. The sounds of the bush are filled with the rustling of leaves and the return on familiar bird sounds. Spring is approaching! This week we were fortunate enough to find General and his compatriots. This bachelor herd of 10 bulls have been on the move recently and it was great to finally catch up with them! We also saw Classic and some younger bulls taking full advantage of a dam, drinking and splashing about in the water. And our day was beautifully ended off with a breeding herd crossing the road in front of us with the mountains in the background. It is always a privilege to spend some time with these gentle giants.

Thank you so much for sharing this delightful Elephant Field Day report.

Your description does so much to capture the spirit of the day.

Really like the photograph of the elephants crossing the road.

Your passion for your fieldwork comes through in both your commentary and the photographs.

It's a privilege for us on Safaritalk to share in your field adventures.
