Description

In the middle of the day a large group of elephants came down to drink on the opposite side of the Shire River.
Apparently another group of birders who were staying at Mvuu were birding on that side of the river and had to come back across to camp because of all these guys.

Description from Wikipedia

The African bush elephant (Loxodonta africana) is the larger of the two species of African elephant. Both it and the African forest elephant have usually been classified as a single species, known simply as the African elephant, but recent evidence has seen the forest elephant classified as a distinct species. Some authorities still consider the currently available evidence as insufficient for splitting African elephants into two species.
