On safari with Maun Rest Camp

A female elephant (loxodonta africana) making a mock charge.<br />
This hot and dry time of the year is stressful for the females with young calves: the calves need milk, food is scarce, it's a long way to drinking water, there are groups of bull elephants around, it's crowded around the water hole and there are elephant hunting lions in the area.<br />
To add to all the stress there are tourists in Land Cruisers - let's scare them off!<br />
