The Thanda Breeding Herd of Elephant assembled for a sundown photo shoot in front of the Thanda Safari Lodge.
They obviously were on “African Time”, as they were too late to catch the beautiful evening light.
Nevertheless a stunning sighting which my guests enjoyed a lot. We watched them having a mud-bath in the pan below the Lodge until the light was almost gone.
A great start to a new week!

Not just a mud bath – it was an elephant mud party! I have never seen such foolish behavior from such stately animals! What fun!
