Big 5 lodge | Elephant mudbathing

On the afternoon safari on the 8th of July we found a breeding herd of elephants walking slowly towards Xibejuane dam. I decided to go to the dam and wait there for the herd to arrive so that we could make sure that we were in a perfect position for taking photos. The dam was already dry, but the mud was still wet and we spent a wonderful hour at the dam watching the elephants bathing in the mud.
