Africa

Weekly Photo Challenge: Family

Chobe National Park is my all time favourite National Park (for now).

It is unofficially the elephant capital of Africa. The latest estimate of the elephant population is around 70,000 to  120,000. It is the highest elephant concentration in Africa and the largest continuous surviving elephant population on Earth.

Here, a family of Kalahari elephants are on their way to destroy some water pipes. It was a particularly dry season that year and the elephants were destroying the water pipes to get any drop of water they could find.

And somehow, they seem to do alright. Such fighters.
