Elephants on the Move
These elephants were moving up the road and eventually made it across a shallow area to the island where they gave the baby elephants a mud bath, and then came to the main body of water and drank water as well as posed for those of us who were in a boat taking photos.

First day we were at Thorny Bush, This Elephant was not happy we were there.  Note flared ears.



These elephants were really close, and it was on this bank that the entire herd seemed to be heading.  Except for the moms who wanted to give the kids a mud bath.
