Mamma elephant protecting baby elephant.
After a morning driving around Majete, @ktiekk and I rocked up at a different watering hole to find an elephant and a few boar, baboons, and deer things. Until this point we had spotted a single elephant, on the distant opposite back of the Shire. After a few minutes three more elephants came and left. Then a group of about 10 rocked up, including two babies and two teenage jumbos.
The elephants knocked around for a while, and eventually wandered off, passing right past us. No sooner had they left than a herd of zebra came to take their turn. They left and were almost immediately replaced by a large herd of buffalo. All the while there were copious wart hogs, baboons, and various deer coming and going but not another person in sight... Then a thunder storm passed over, which was also quite cool.
After an hour of non-stop animals visiting group-by-group, the watering hole was one again completely deserted. Then a bunch of mzungus arrived with their guide. If only they knew what they just missed... #elephant #babyanimals #babyelephant #cuteanimals #safari #majete #malawi
