"Elephants" Big 5 Tip by Beefy_SAFC

Big 5, Kruger National Park: 42 reviews and 66 photos

by Beefy_SAFC

The big guns of the African plains, with a lifespan to match most humans. The matriarch (top female) here is being very protective of the elephant calves. Easily understandable when you consider than contrary to popular belief, lions DO tackle, kill and eat elephants. In Namibia, prides of up to forty lions have been observed to bring down elephants not part of a herd.
