​Further images from a sequence taken at the time of the panoramic image above. With the exception of Image 1 which was taken the day before, when we were charged by a young bull within 10 minutes of leaving the airstrip in Ruaha. However our guide Tonny dealt with the matter in a very professional if not slightly unorthodox manner, leaping from his seat and pointing violently away from our vehicle he began to scream "Go away" at the top of his voice. This amazingly worked very well, the elephant immediately sulked away. Tonny who proved to be an excellent guide was thereafter known as 'The Elephant Whisperer', and I can vouch for the fact that an elephant charge works as an excellent safari laxative. I remember turning to my wife and saying "This part of our trip could be very interesting".

Image 1. Irate young elephant takes exception to our vehicle. (Distance from vehicle no more than 10 yards possibly less).

From previous post.

Image 2. Largest 'Tusker' in the herd.

Image 3. Herd approach the opposite bank. (We are parked about 20 yards away from the river).

Image 4. Some anxiety in the herd.

Image 5. Individual close up.

Image 6. According to our guide Tonny, sorry 'The Elephant Whisperer' when the trunk is in this position the animal is relatively calm!

THE ELEPHANTS OF TARANGIRE, PART ONE.

The following images were taken during 2 visits to Tarangire N. P. Tanzania in July 2015 & 2016, both visits were of 3 nights duration and were part of a multiple camp safari. On both visits we stayed at Oliver's Camp, which incidentally is excellent, during which time we enjoyed 6 half day game drives, 2 full day, 2 walks and 2 night drives. Our mammal count for both visits combined was 35 different species / subspecies. Tarangire remains one of our favourite safari destinations as it is still relatively quiet and has a variety of differing habitats. Tarangire is well known for the number of elephants that the park and the surrounding eco-system support. Numbers however did seem smaller in 2016, based purely on our own observations.

(All images taken in the area immediately around the Silale Swamp).

 

Image 1. The Next Generation. (Hopefully).

Image 2. Dust bath.

Image 3. Tusks.

Image 4. Old Bull.

Image 5. Mother and calf.

Image 6. Herd approaching Silale Swamp. I make it 29, any offers.
