Elephants Cooling Down

Watching this family of elephants bathing in the mud to cool down is surprisingly funny.

– If nothing just watch from 0:55 –

We were extremely lucky on this safari. Our guide Hilary was a well educated guy from the Mweka Wildlife College and was so passionate about wildlife, that he didn’t just want to show us the Serengeti, he was there for himself as well – he was just as eager as we were to take photos whenever we saw something exciting. Most importantly, he had no ambition to make extra money by saving gas, he took us as far away as he possibly could. We found these elephants at such a time: far away from everyone we were the only ones.

We went canooing at the river. There should have been alligators and maybe rhino’s to see. Unfortunately we didn’t get to see any of these.
