Description

This male elephant in musth was in a cranky mood. When he saw us observing him from a distance he came over and mock-charged us, before swerving away at the last minute.

Description

Our first stop upon entering Kruger NP was at Sable Dam, just 7.5 kilometers in from Phalaborwa Gate.
There was a large group of elephants at the water there, along with Impala (by far the most abundant species in Kruger) and few Giraffes.
This young elephant was acting pretty silly, running around and pretending to charge at some of the birds drinking on the water's edge.
