Elephants Crossing the Zambezi

Summer 2008

As our boat floated down the river, we reached a junction that was where all of the elephant herds seemed to use to cross over to the other side of the river.

As some herds came out of the water, other herds moved in to cross over.

Different families all going about their way at this crossing juncture.

Led by the matriarch, a family of elephants moved in, with young ones and adults getting in an orderly line to begin the cross.

Big elephants, little elephants, all huddled together as they prepared to swim.

You will have to wait in suspense for the elephants swimming their crossing to come out this week.
