Elephants in South Africa

Mother and baby elephant crossing the levi to get a drink and play in the water. A second female elephant came up and charged at the lead car in order to get it to give them room to get to the water. Then it backed itself down the waterside of the levi backwards so that she could keep an eye on us.
