Elephants of Africa

Posted by in Photography

I have returned from East Africa, the heaven of wildlife photography. If I was trying to give you an overall series of what I have seen in Africa, the series would be endless and you would be bored halfway through. In order to avoid that, I am splitting the set into different topics. I will present landscapes, people and wilflife over the next few weeks. Let’s start with the most majestic of all animals, the Elephant.

I will not lose a lot of words in this post. If you want to know more about elephants, try Wikipedia. It is my intention to show you the beauty of these gentle giants, not educate. Enjoy!

Tarangire National Park in Northern Tanzania is possibly one of the best paces to spot Elephants. This area is not only dottet with acacia trees, baobabs and palms, it is also home to Tarangire River which¬†caters well to the Elephants’ to drink – a lot.
